Jump ARCHES

Elizabeth Hsiao-Wecksler

Jump Applied Research through Community Health through Engineering and Simulation (ARCHES) is a partnership between Jump Simulation and Education Center at OSF HealthCare and HCESC in The Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois.

It was established in 2014 by a $62.5 million gift to provide direct access and competitive grants to engineers and physicians working together to combat problems in the realm of healthcare. In 2019, the partnership was expanded with a new commitment of $50 million. Proposal requests are accepted twice annually. Jump ARCHES also offers an annual summer internship at HCESC for UIUC students.
