DOM Faculty Highlights
The Department of Medicine at Northwestern has a large and diverse faculty. More than 350 faculty members participate each year in the teaching mission of the Department. Residents interact with faculty members on the clinical services and choose individual faculty members to serve as career and research mentors. Due to the depth of knowledge and expertise available in all of the subspecialties, many of our residents have enjoyed a close working relationship with a subspecialty mentor during their training. Below is a just a glimpse of the impressive activities our faculty maintain.
