Supporting an outstanding learning environment that includes accompanying our learners through their medical school journey while partnering with faculty to create engaging and impactful experiences in the classroom, clinical spaces and beyond – that’s the ultimate goal for the Academic Affairs team at the Peoria regional campus.

The mission of our Academic Affairs Team is to create and foster an outstanding learning environment throughout all phases of each student's journey through undergraduate medical education. Our faculty and staff are one of the best assets on our campus whether it's providing impactful experiences in the classroom, clinical rotations, or personal and professional mentoring. It is a privilege to be part of each student’s individual journey and watching them transform as they enter the profession of medicine. This shared environment fosters respect, support and intellectual curiosity that makes a phenomenal UICOMP community.

Perhaps most rewarding is witnessing first-hand the confidence and growth of our students, the thoughtful mentorship they receive from dedicated faculty, and the supportive and caring environment created by their peers and the UICOMP community.
