About The University of Chicago Medical Center

The University of Chicago Medicine, with a history dating to 1927, is a not-for-profit academic medical health system based on the campus of the University of Chicago in Hyde Park, and with hospitals, outpatient clinics and physician practices throughout Chicago and its suburbs. UChicago Medicine unites five organizations to fulfill its tripartite mission of medical education, research and patient care: Pritzker School of Medicine, Biological Sciences Division, Medical Center, Community Health and Hospital Division, and UChicago Medicine Physicians.

UChicago Medicine physicians and researchers have helped shape modern medicine. They're responsible for pioneering organ transplantation, discovering that cancer is a genetic disease, introducing chemotherapy as a cancer treatment and developing life-changing digestive diseases treatments, among many other breakthroughs. We have about 1,200 doctors and 3,000 nurses providing care across the full array of medical and surgical specialties. Most of our physicians also serve as faculty members of the Pritzker School of Medicine, teaching the next generation of doctors.
