SIU School of MedicineSIU School of Medicine
We are SIU Medicine, a publicly assisted medical school and a clinical practice focused on the health care needs of downstate Illinois. The School of Medicine is part of Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
For more than 50 years, SIU Medicine has been an innovative leader in medical education and a key player in the development of the regional academic medical center in Springfield. Set amid the city’s growing Mid-Illinois Medical District, the school is a driving force in improving the population’s health.
Our student experience focuses on empathetic values and a philosophy of treating patients as people, not diseases. Creative, interactive training makes our graduates among the most skilled and confident clinicians in the nation.
Join us for a special InFocus highlight on a new podcast partnership between SIU’s School of Medicine and WSIU. So ILL explores the impact of climate change on healthcare, but also healthcare’s impact on climate change. We’ll hear from one of the students involved in ‘So Ill,’ about why it’s so important.
