About Us

Mentor Mixer

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine embraces the diversity of our faculty, workforce and trainees as a great strength. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion strives to create a medical campus environment of belonging and respect for all. We are committed to an inclusive curriculum that is free of bias and promotes health equity for all. 

Our Vision

As a medical school embedded within one of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States, Feinberg aspires to be a leader in academic medical diversity initiatives and practice. 

  • We embrace a broad definition of diversity that includes not only students from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in medicine, but also other racial and ethnic, religious, gender, and sexual identities; people with disabilities, and socioeconomic diversity
  • We espouse the advancement of diversity in the profession as a core strategic priority
  • We integrate diversity initiatives throughout our teaching, research, and clinical activities
