Who We Are
A spirit of inquiry, diligence, and academic excellence characterized our university’s namesake, Dr. Rosalind Franklin, who in 1952 captured the photograph revealing the structure of DNA. Today, those same traits drive our faculty and 2,000+ students as they engage in a level of rigorous academics, pioneering research, and innovative community service that continues to shape the future of health care. Formed in 1912 as the Chicago Hospital-College of Medicine, today Rosalind Franklin University brings together six colleges and over 30 graduate health profession and science programs. The range of disciplines being taught on a single campus allows for team-based, interdisciplinary learning and practice opportunities—an approach that has made Rosalind Franklin University a national leader in interprofessional medical and healthcare education and research.
Our students are further prepared for their careers through our state-of-the-art network of simulation and skills labs and a wide variety of clinical opportunities including the RFU Health Clinics that host the Community Care Connection and other direct care initiatives. Located 36 miles north of Chicago in the city’s North Shore suburbs, Rosalind Franklin University students have access to a wide range of clinical and service learning experiences. Rosalind Franklin University’s 2,000+ students enjoy an engaged, supportive sense of community with peers who share their academic interests and goals, and faculty who know them by name and are committed to their individual success. More than 21,000 Rosalind Franklin University alumni have taken what they learned here into careers in almost every state in the nation, and to the world as well.
