Ambulatory Education

Ambulatory training has long been a highlight of the program. Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine residents care for a great variety of outpatients in general medicine. Each PGY1 trainee begins a half-day general medicine continuity clinic at either Legacy Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation (NM) or the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center. At the beginning of the second year each resident adds a second half day of continuity clinic. Exposure to the both clinic settings provides experience in adapting to various systems of care, as well as the opportunity to manage an enormous variety of patients. Full time faculty members provide long-term education and follow-up.

We are proud of our graduates who have gone into general internal medicine over the years.  Please inquire about an updated list of graduates who have gone into general internal medicine as evidence of our success!
Full time faculty members provide long-term education and follow-up. Locations available for other continuity clinic opportunities include three community centers that provide care to under-served populations in Chicago. These locations remain popular and are profound learning experiences.
