We are the UIC Urban Health Program.

Welcome to the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Urban Health Program (UHP), the flagship for moving forward the mission to increase minorities within the health sciences and the health professions.

The ultimate goal of our program is to provide programming, resources, and support for pre-health and health professional students, dedicated to addressing persistent health disparities in minority populations and improving the quality and availability of healthcare in underserved urban areas.
