Diversity and Inclusion

Medical Scientist Training Program

Our MSTP (MD-PhD) Program is enriched by the diversity in our student population. We have trained dozens of students from backgrounds underrepresented in science and medicine who have gone on to be professors or research resident physicians at the country’s leading academic medical centers. Our program’s personalized approach is one of our greatest assets, and it ensures that all our students achieve their potential. John E. Franklin, MD, MSc, Associate Dean of Diversity and Inclusion, Multicultural Affairs and Student Support, at Feinberg, and MSTP Diversity and Inclusion Officer, confidentially monitors applications of students from a racial or ethnic minority group, a student from a disadvantaged background, or a student with a disability in parallel to the MSTP Admissions Committee to assure that you receive full consideration.

The Office of Diversity works in partnership with the Feinberg Medical Spanish Interest Group, the Office of Human Resources at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Northwestern Memorial Academy and the departments of Foods and Nutrition and Environmental Services at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
