In academic medicine, SIU is renowned for faculty that think – and teach – outside the box. Learn why our residency programs are some of the most competitive in the U.S.
The school’s community-based approach places medical students in hospitals and physicians’ offices throughout central and southern Illinois, working with patients in real-world situations. This produces better prepared, more confident clinicians as they begin residency.
Residency programs provide specialized training for students who have just finished medical school and fellowships equip them with advanced training beyond residency. More than 2,850 resident physicians have trained at SIU School of Medicine.
