It produces more physicians than any other medical school in America, it’s on the cutting edge of medical research, it’s a leader in treatment for both health and social diseases, and it’s in our back yard. It is the University of Illinois College of Medicine and the new WTVP documentary, Lessons Beyond Medicine, looks back at the history of the Peoria campus (UICOMP) and the many ways it touches Central Illinois residents today.

In Lessons Beyond Medicine, WTVP looks back at the growth of the Peoria-based college, one of four campuses of the University of Illinois College of Medicine, from its first two-room office at the then-First National Bank building to today's expansion of world-class research facilities. The special explores the many ways in which the College of Medicine affects Central Illinois, including the only full-service HIV/AIDS clinic, assistance at community health clinics, medical care at autism and cerebral palsy centers, a clinic for abused children and a rural physicians training program.

Lessons Beyond Medicine also will give viewers a glimpse of the future, including new research to cure cancer and Alzheimer's Disease, and the development of a state-of-the-art simulation program.
This program was made possible by by CEFCU and other Doners.
