The first-year basic medical science program at Urbana-Champaign also serves those students who will complete their last three years of medical school at Peoria or Rockford.

The College of Medicine at Urbana-Champaign opened in 1971 to provide a year of basic medical science education to students who would complete their training elsewhere in the University of Illinois system. Over the years enrollment in the first-year program has grown from 13 to 125 students, the number presently enrolled. In 1978, the program was expanded to include the remaining three years of undergraduate medical education, and each year 25 medical students (mostly students in the Medical Scholars Program) remain in Urbana-Champaign to complete their MD degree. The College of Medicine had its last accreditation review in November, 2001, at which time the College received a full eight-year accreditation
