University of Illinois College of Medicine ranked 11th nationwide

The University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria was named among the top 15 producers of primary care graduates across the U.S., according to a new study in the medical journal, Academic Medicine.

UICOMP ranked No. 11 of 161 U.S. institutions sponsoring graduate medical education with more than 200 residency graduates between 2006-2008, according to the report that will appear in the September issue of Academic Medicine. Rankings were based on the rate of residency graduates who entered primary care compared to total number of residency graduates.


“What this says is that we are providing accountable health care education, and the quality of education being provided by the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria is commensurate with societal needs, which is ever so important,” Thomas Santoro, MD, UICOMP’s Associate Dean of Graduate Medical Education, said of the study. “Not only are we providing the type of care that’s needed – the primary care physician – but also where they’re needed geographically. We’re fulfilling our mission and doing what the College of Medicine in Peoria was created to do.”
