Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine


Education-Centered Medical Home

NMPG Group

The mission of the Education-Centered Medical Home is to provide students with early and comprehensive educational exposure to team-based medicine in an authentic outpatient environment, empowering students to take charge of patients longitudinally over their medical school career. With an emphasis on continuity, students will work with the same preceptor and peers over the four years to help care for patients and measure their progress. Students will learn first-hand about medical outcomes, patient safety and quality improvement, including how to design, implement and evaluate improvement plans. The model, which helps students build a professional identity as early as the first year of medical school, offers 360-degree assessment opportunities, with feedback from patients, peers and preceptors linking back to the Feinberg School’s eight core competencies.
