Who We Are

Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS) is a six-college graduate health sciences university dedicated to the interprofessional education of health and biomedical professionals. Chicago Medical School, the original college of the six, has been educating physicians and furthering biomedical research for more than 100 years.
