Integration with the Medical Center Offers Advantages for Rush University Students

The University shares the Rush University Medical Center campus. Its professors and instructors are physicians and clinicians at the Medical Center. This integrated, practitioner-teacher model of education offers students key advantages:

  • Experienced teachers: Faculty practice what they teach in an environment fostering research. They are the thought leaders of their professions, grounded in experience.
  • Real-world practice: The hospital’s inpatient units, clinics, outpatient centers and research facilities serve as students’ learning labs. Book knowledge is translated to the bedside. Patient-focused, team-based care is constantly put into practice.

Rush University is located five minutes from downtown Chicago, with all the cultural, entertainment, social and recreational opportunities typical of a world-class city.
