Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Medicine


The Division of Hospital Medicine conducts groundbreaking research addressing important questions related to all aspects of healthcare quality: safety, effectiveness, patient-centeredness, timeliness, efficiency, and equitability.  Researchers in our Division include national experts in patient safety, simulation-based training, inter-professional teamwork, transitions of care, and end-of-life care.  

The Division of Hospital Medicine will conduct innovative research that benefits patients facing acute, serious, and/or life-limiting medical illness. We believe research is most successful when conducted by inter-professional teams and with specific outcomes that are measurable and matter to patients.
