NU Docs

NU Docs is a pathway program designed to provide an immersive, weeklong introduction to careers in medicine for Northwestern University undergraduate students. The program is offered by the Feinberg School of Medicine Office of Diversity & Inclusion in partnership with Northwestern University Health Professions Advising and Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences. NU Docs complements Feinberg’s commitment to supporting and preparing students to become excellent, patient-centered leaders and future physicians through its pathway structure and diverse programming.

During their spring break, selected Northwestern undergraduates experience a full week of programming, including admissions advising sessions, resident and medical student panels, specialty talks from faculty and laboratory exposure. Students also have the opportunity to shadow faculty members in clinic, which provides a firsthand view into the daily life of a physician. Through the guidance and mentorship offered in this program, we aim to identify promising candidates early and to provide the support they need to successfully enroll in medical school. The NU Docs program runs yearly during the week of spring break. There will be opportunities to engage with Feinberg beyond the weeklong experience.
