RUSH University celebrates 50 years of education, discovery and clinical excellence. With deep roots in Chicago and a rich tradition of service, the University has continually evolved, raising the standard of education to better serve our community and improve health. We look forward to an exciting new era of growth, building on our legacy of innovation to help the next generation of health care leaders thrive.
We’re inviting faculty, students and staff to look back and share stories of the mentoring relationships, the community commitments and the research firsts that have defined the RUSH experience for 50 years.
From the original RUSH Medical School charter in 1837, to the 2022 groundbreaking for the future cancer and neuroscience care center, explore the milestones in RUSH’s evolution with our interactive timeline.
A joyful commencement ceremony honoring our graduates, a fall alumni reunion weekend, and more. We’ll be creating moments all year for the RUSH community to gather in celebration.
