Loyola’s home for health sciences
The Health Sciences Campus is home to more than 600 medical students and majority of health sciences graduate-level classes. Established in 1962 in Maywood, Illinois, as the medical center campus, it was renamed the Health Sciences Campus in 2011 after the consolidation of Loyola University Health System with Trinity Health.
A strong clinical partnership
Our clinical partners at the Loyola University Health System and Trinity Health help us set the standard for top-tier health sciences education and research. The Loyola University Medical Center is adjacent to our Health Sciences Campus and our faculty members often have clinical appointments at the Loyola University Health System. This strong partnership helps provide our students with relevant and up-to-date techniques, practices, and methods.
