University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria
Children’s Hospital of Illinois is the major pediatric teaching affiliate for the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria. This affiliation ensures each child has 24-hour, in-house physician coverage available with pediatric specialists for immediate consultations. That’s important when a child needs treatment for something as common as asthma – or as complex as heart disease, premature birth or cancer.
Our more than 115 pediatric specialists are involved in
the care of patients and in research to improve the
lives of children.
Children’s Hospital serves as the clinical site for the pediatric, med/peds and surgical residency programs. Third year medical students are able to apply for a clerkship within the Department of Pediatrics.
