Southern Illinois University School of Medicine

SIU School of Medicine was established in 1970 with a mission to educate physicians to remain in central and southern Illinois. We are a medical school with four areas of excellence: medical education, patient care, research and community service. 

Our 270 physicians treat patients throughout the region through our multidisciplinary clinics called SIU Medicine. We also engage in world-renowned research, notably in cancer, Alzheimer's and audiology. Community service is a part of everything we do.

As a community-based medical school, we don't own our hospitals, but partner with numerous hospitals in Illinois to ensure the needs of the communities are met with a patient-centered focus.
