“As the City’s only public research university we have embraced our social responsibility to foster and support all our students, from diverse backgrounds, to achieve dreams of becoming health professionals and biomedical scientists to better serve our communities,” said UIC Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs Dr. Robert Barish. “UI Health trains numerous physicians, pharmacists, nurses, dentists, social workers, physical and occupational therapists – and many other health care providers.
