OSF-SFMC just completed a $250-million-dollar expansion and, jointly with the College of Medicine and a generous donation by Jump Trading LLC, opened the new Jump Trading Simulation and Education Center, advancing the mission of both organizations and serving as further proof that UICOMP is living their vision to be a national leader in the transformation of medical education, research, scholarship, and patient-centered care.
