Education is the defining mission of a medical school. Northwestern is committed to providing outstanding and innovative educational programs for physicians, other health care professionals, and scientists to meet the needs of society.
An academic medical center such as Northwestern's strives to quickly apply laboratory research successes to clinical practice. The medical school has pushed forward the science of medicine and focused on clinically useful research throughout its history. This includes the first antiseptic surgery, the first amniocentesis, the first use of a microscope in surgery, and the earliest laser surgeries.
The faculty of the Feinberg School of Medicine provide the highest quality patient care through their hospital partners in the McGaw Medical Center of Northwestern University and affiliated practice plans.
