Lakefront beauty and a cosmopolitan, urban cityscape surround the Feinberg School, which is located on Northwestern University's Chicago campus between the shoreline of Lake Michigan and Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile. In the heart of Chicago, students can avail themselves of innumerable cultural and recreational activities just steps away from campus.
The University's 20-acre Chicago campus includes nearly 2,000 full-time medical, physical therapy, law, and Graduate School students. More than 2,400 part-time students are enrolled in the evening programs of the Kellogg School of Management and School of Continuing Studies. Also on campus are member institutions of the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University: Northwestern Memorial Hospital (NMH) and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC). The cardiology fellowship program is centered at the Medical School (and its Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute), Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center (JBVAMC). Children’s Memorial Hospital (CMH), located three miles north of the Chicago campus in the Lincoln Park area is also a member of the McGaw Medical Center.
The Feinberg School enjoys close proximity to five other academic medical centers in the Chicago area and medical students can take full advantage of the resources of a number of important medical organizations headquartered in the city. These include the American Medical Association, American Hospital Association, American College of Surgeons, and many professional academies, colleges, societies, and boards of specialty fields.
