Residency Overview

Residency Program Video

Our residency and fellowship programs function within the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University and are primarily based at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, which is consistently ranked as the top hospital in Illinois and in the top 10 nationwide.

In conjunction with our laboratory staff, our faculty actively engage trainees to learn the essential elements of the science and practice of pathology in a setting that provides a large, diverse volume of clinical specimen types and an atmosphere of inquiry and discovery.

The three- or four-year, fully-accredited residency program within the Department of Pathology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine provides doctors with the environment and skills to excel in clinical service, research and leadership roles.

You can learn more about our offerings and the achievements of our trainees and faculty via this website and by following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. You can also view our resident features page.
