The Carle Illinois College of Medicine is the first medical school in the nation focused, from the beginning, at the intersection of engineering, technology, big data, and health care. We will shape a new kind of graduate, who will be a physician-innovator, and provide a culture uniquely prepared to offer new discoveries that will have a worldwide impact. The future of the Carle Illinois College of Medicine stands at a critical founding moment—we have the leadership and strategy in place, and we look to new partners, like you, who understand the impact we can have on the region, nation, and world to join us in taking the next strides forward. Together we can transform the future of Medicine for Illinois and the world. We ask that you join us.
Scholarships for Carle Illinois students are one way we remove barriers to their success and enable them to focus on what is truly important to their education: becoming physician-innovators. Without the financial burden of full medical school tuition, medical scholars can pursue the ideas both during school and afterwards that will change the way medicine is practiced. Scholarships help to recruit a highly-qualified, diverse student body that better reflects patient populations. They also enable Carle Illinois trained physicians, through innovative technologies, to serve our most vulnerable populations and take creative risks with ideas to improve patient health and wellness.
At Carle Illinois, we foster creativity and facilitate translation of innovation from research, curriculum and design projects to improve healthcare delivery, quality and access, and ultimately lead to lower healthcare cost delivery. The Innovation Fund will provide our medical students with the resources to implement their classroom and clinical training into design ideas and prototypes. This radically new approach to medical education is intended to develop physicians-innovators who are self-directed, life-long learners. Additionally, the Innovation Fund will help to democratize healthcare through “Make-a-Thon” competitions* to encourage anyone with a way to improve healthcare delivery with an option to move that idea forward.
