Diversity & Inclusion

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is a place where all individuals embrace their identities, find belongingness and strive to promote health equity, social justice and advocacy.

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is committed to training future leaders in medicine in a truly diverse and inclusive medical school, striving to represent the patients we serve in our Chicagoland communities. We welcome students from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, sexual and gender identities, socioeconomic status, geographic origin, age and curricular experiences. Twenty-three percent of our class is underrepresented in medicine, and over half the class will have taken one or more years off after completing their undergraduate degree. Feinberg students bring and share their own story, with a wide variety of experiences, backgrounds and cultures. Our students arrive to campus from over 30 home states and almost 60 undergraduate institutions, graduating with over 50 majors and speaking more than 30 languages.
