Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Medical Faculty Council


The Medical Faculty Council is the body that represents all of the medical school faculty to the medical school administration.  Members welcome their faculty peers to connect with them about concerns related to medical school.

The Value of Representation

Each department has a representative who is required to attend the monthly MFC meetings. See our Council Representatives page to find your representative. Your representative is your department, center, or program's window into the happenings between the administration and the larger medical faculty.

If you are interested in getting involved with the MFC and contributing your leadership skills to the university in this unique way, please contact us.

The MFC is allows members to not only engage with the medical school administration, but also with individuals in other departments and centers.

The ability to enable a dialogue between my medical school colleagues and the many stakeholders that comprise the Feinberg School of Medicine is simply a tremendous opportunity.

MFC Ex-Officio

All Feinberg faculty members are busy with their own work and likely have little time to give thought to topics that may be relevant, but outside of the usual discussions that typically focus on specific research and/or clinical interests. MFC helps to broaden the horizons and offers a platform for learning about potentially valuable and useful new directions or activities that would otherwise go unnoticed. 

MFC has increasingly become a place for positive, proactive discussion, encouragement and mentorship that transcends the departmental or programmatic borders and instead offers mutual sharing and interdisciplinary networking that is proving to be increasingly rewarding and productive.
