Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS) is a nonprofit, private, interprofessional graduate school located in North Chicago, Illinois. It has more than 2,000 students in five schools: the Chicago Medical School, the College of Health Professions, the College of Pharmacy, the School of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, and the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine.

The university is named for famous DNA crystallographer Rosalind Franklin. Photo 51, Dr. Franklin's X-ray diffraction pattern for B-DNA, was pivotal in the history of biology in the twentieth century, and this photograph is the basis for the university's seal and logo.

The university offers over 29 study programs in graduate health-related subjects, including PhD programs for medical and basic research.

Facilities include a multi-media laboratory, a virtual microscopy lab, a simulation lab, and the Education and Evaluation Center, with high-tech opportunities for education and research.

The University is located to the west of the Naval Station Great Lakes and to the south of the Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center.
