Carol Coniglio - Medical Education Program Specialist



Carol Coniglio, AIC, CSA

Medical Education Program Specialist

Department of Population Science and Policy



Primary Responsibilities:

My primary responsibilities include providing coordination and ongoing support for the Population Science and Policy curriculum, which consists of traditional lectures, online resources, and electives for SIU SOM medical students, and serving as a liaison between PSP Faculty and students. Other duties involve administrative support for the MD/MPH Joint Degree Program and education-related projects within the Department.


I grew up in Riverton, Illinois where I graduated from high school. Continuing my education, I studied Secretarial Administration at Robert Morris University in Springfield. After college, I worked at Memorial Medical Center as a Laboratory Medical Transcriptionist and at SIU Otolaryngology Department as a Secretary III for a combined five years. Later, I pursued a career at Shelter Insurance in the Claims Department with the Catastrophe Team for twenty-one years. This rewarding work allowed me to traveled to many of our operating areas across the United States assisting customers after devastating losses such as tornados, hurricanes and hail/wind damage. I was excited to return to SIU in the fall of 2017. I spent three years in the Family Medicine Department as an Office Manager, and transferred to Population Science and Policy in early 2021. In my spare time, I love to read, snuggle with my dog, spend time with family and friends, hike and watch or attend hockey, baseball, and football games.
