About Our International Program
At the Forefront of Medicine Since 1927
Since opening its first hospital in 1927, the University of Chicago Medicine has grown into an integrated academic and community health system. The not-for-profit academic medical health system began on the University of Chicago's campus in Hyde Park, but now practices throughout Chicago, the suburbs and northwest Indiana. UChicago Medicine unites five organizations to fulfill its tripartite mission of medical education, research and patient care: Pritzker School of Medicine, Biological Sciences Division, Medical Center, Community Health and Hospital Division, and UChicago Medicine Physicians.
