Student Inquiry and Innovation

AOSC Poster Session with Feinberg medical students

Feinberg aims to develop inquiry-driven physicians. To do so, we encourage an environment where our MD students can set their own path in scholarship and to find research mentors among our field-leading faculty.

Area of Scholarly Concentration

This program is an opportunity for students to personalize their studies, gain expertise in an area of investigation of their choosing, and work with an expert mentor as they design and conduct a research project across their four years here at Feinberg.

Exceptional Facilities

Northwestern is making an extraordinary investment in research in the years to come. The Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center will be a 600,000-square foot, 14-story building in the heart of our campus. With a Phase One completion date of late 2018, the center will house nine laboratory floors dedicated to biomedical research.
