About the Carle Illinois College of Medicine

We envision a future where, by leveraging engineering and advanced technology, doctors provide more humanistic care for patients. A future where excellent health care is available to everyone who needs it–no matter who they are or where they live. As the first college of medicine in the world with a curriculum that fuses engineering, medicine and the humanities, we’re creating a truly innovative future.


We are driven by four key qualities that permeate our culture and result in a self-enhancing environment. Our mission and vision are rooted in Compassion, Competence, Curiosity and Creativity.
