SIU School of Medicine's mission is to optimize the health of the people of central and southern Illinois through education, patient care, research and service to the community. SIU Graduate Medical Education (GME) supports this mission via program excellence, individual attention and support for learners, supervisors and staff, and strong relationships with our affiliate hospitals.
Our GME programs offer learners direct access to sophisticated technologies, advanced training and evidence-based innovations. Our institutional aim is to train physicians in a variety of specialties who are well-equipped to practice in small urban and rural communities.
Graduates of SIU residency and fellowship programs will be confident, caring and passionate physicians who will succeed and carry our values, and our commitment to social accountability, wherever they choose to practice.
