Commitment to Diversity. The University of Illinois at Chicago is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer that has a strong institutional commitment to the principle of diversity. The UIC IRACDA program is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse group of scholars, and therefore is particularly interested in receiving applications from a broad spectrum of people who can contribute to the multiculturalism and excellence of our academic community, including members of underrepresented minorities, women, covered veterans, LGTBIA , and individuals with disabilities. Our goal is to attract world-class applicants who will go on to enrich the educational experience of future generations of students.


Review process. The UIC IRACDA program uses a holistic review, as defined by the AAMC as “mission-aligned admissions or selection processes that consider a broad range of factors—experiences, attributes, and academic metrics—when reviewing applications”. We recognize that the unique background, experience, and characteristics of each candidate are different and will add to the diversity of the program. Equal importance will be given to scholarly accomplishments, quality of references, and the personal statement.
