Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Reviews
The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is a 4-year MD-granting program that offers students a more individualized curriculum while being able to experience a large city. Within the first two years of medical school, students will learn the organ systems, begin their Area of Scholarly Concentration project, and have a choice between two learning options for their longitudinal clinical experiences. Northwestern believes that to be able to care for patients, you have to start with caring for yourself. They want students to find balance physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially. The Feinberg School of Medicine encourages students to participate in community organizations or school organizations.
Our mission is to impact the practice of medicine through discovery and education. The pursuit of excellence requires a learning organization grounded in leadership, innovation, and compassionate care that can translate new knowledge into better human health. These attributes are interwoven by professionalism dedicated to teamwork, collegiality, and social and intellectual diversity. Such values promote the best interests of medicine and further strengthen our social contract with the community we serve.
