CHAMPAIGN -- A new medical college could be in the works at the UI. The university and Carle Hospital hired a consulting company to see if it's possible.

The company recommended a specialized engineering-based medical college. It would be the first of its kind and will focus on engineering and computer health sciences along with medicine.

The study says investments and new jobs will flow into Illinois at a faster pace.
