The University of Illinois features four campuses for students studying medicine: Peoria, Rockford, Chicago, and Urbana. Students who enroll in the Chicago program remain there for the duration of their training. To apply, individuals should fill out a common application through the American Medical College Application Service. Applicants have from April 15 until November 15 to submit the form in order to join the class entering the following year.
While the university accepts students with any major, they must have completed a significant amount of courses and lab sections in the behavioral, biological, and physical sciences. These include two courses each of general inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biological sciences, and general physics, as well as three social sciences. Students can fulfill the latter requirement by taking anthropology, sociology, or psychology courses.
