Application Process

The application process for the 2023-2024 internship year is completely online (See the APPIC website, for more details). All application materials must be uploaded via the applicant portal on the APPIC website. We will not accept paper or emailed materials.  The Center conforms to APPIC Match Policies regarding internship applications, interviews and decisions, including the stipulation that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from an intern applicant.

The University of Illinois may conduct background checks on all job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent offer. Background checks will be performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

As of January 9,  2023, with the exception of the UIHealth system and clinics, which have separate regulations, the University of Illinois System will no longer require the COVID-19 primary vaccine series for students and employees.  Staying up to date with the most recent vaccine or booster available is strongly recommended and free testing continues to be available. Effective February 20, 2023, masking is encouraged but no longer required in classrooms, lecture centers, research labs, libraries and learning/success centers, the Counseling Center and on UIC shuttles and buses.  Masking remains required in all clinical areas for staff, patients, and visitors at UI Health hospitals and clinics.
