Thank you for your interest in the outstanding medical education offered at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. As a medical school located on the campus of a world class university, our medical students have the opportunity to take advantage of the resources of one of our country’s greatest centers of learning.

The accessibility of our faculty is a very important strength of our program. You will be taught by full-time faculty who are not only outstanding teachers but leading scientists and world famous clinicians. And the most critical ingredient of our success is the quality of the students themselves. Here at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, you will find a student body whose boundless enthusiasm for learning, service, investigation and science is matched only by its enthusiasm for teamwork, friendship, and making the most of the great city of Chicago.

When you graduate, you will be prepared to follow generations of Pritzker-trained physicians to the best residency training programs in the country and ultimately into the career of your choice.
