Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science
, located on Green Bay Road in North Chicago, was established in 1912 and consists of four schools: Chicago Medical School College of Health Professions Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies
The University was designed to build teams of health professionals and bring together diagnostic, supportive, and investigative functions of medicine in one setting. University leaders understand the value of educating interprofessional healthcare teams together for the good of all.
The idea is simple: by learning together, students of all health professions come to respect each others’ contributions and work together effectively for the well-being of the patient. The University’s vision is to consistently innovate in the education of health and biomedical professionals, and in knowledge creation and scientific discovery, and, together with our partners, be recognized as an established academic health sciences center serving a diverse nation with excellence.
Our mission remains simple - to serve the nation through the education of health professionals and the discovery of knowledge dedicated to improving the health of its people. Today, the University stands on the frontier of the new health care by educating the next generation of healthcare professionals, conducting leading-edge biomedical research, and serving the community in innovative ways. We extend our mission beyond the classrooms and the laboratories, to places where we can improve humankind through outstanding clinical programs and community service - to places where we can make a difference. We foster a premier learning environment for the education and development of healthcare professionals. For more information, visit www.rosalindfranklin.edu
