New MD Curriculum at Feinberg
To prepare millennial learners to practice 21st century medicine, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is creating a more integrated educational environment, closely aligning classroom instruction with relevant, hands-on clinical experiences from day one. This approach facilitates active, inquiry-driven learning.
The new curriculum offers students:
- A team-based care model in which students practice and refine clinical and communication skills in authentic patient-care and simulated environments.
- A focus on multi-dimensional care that is patient-centered, safe, cost-effective, efficient, evidence-based, culturally competent, and equitable.
- A highly mentored research experience in a personal area of interest over the four years that will lead to a thesis or other scholarly work.
- A longitudinal clinical experience with the underserved to develop the skills to become culturally sensitive, globally aware, and socially accountable practitioners with compassion.
- Principles We Value
These organizing principles were developed over three years and direct every aspect of our curriculum.
- How the Model Works
The integrated, three-phase model improves on the traditional format and better aligns with how today's students learn.
Using these important foundations, Feinberg will develop tomorrow’s healthcare leaders and arm them with the tools for success in many different environments. We invite you to learn more about our renewed curriculum.
