Feinberg School Web Guidelines

The Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine websites have been carefully crafted to deliver a successful user experience - the greatest benefits to the greatest number of users, across multiple devices. Our guidelines have been designed to promote a consistent identity and brand strategy across all Feinberg organizations. They supersede any units' internal standards.

Our web guidelines were updated in May 2014 to keep in line with industry best practices, address stakeholder feedback, and align with Northwestern Medicine branding, and are responsive.


Develop strategic, searchable, web-friendly content with our Web Content Guidelines.
