Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Department of Medicine


Within the Department of Medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, we believe that the best residency training occurs when professional responsibility and autonomy increase commensurate with demonstrated competence, all within a supportive environment. Our three-year categorical program provides excellent preparation for a career in general internal medicine, hospital medicine or one of its subspecialties. Our curriculum provides a well-balanced experience for all residents and prepares them for a career in academic medicine.
