Admissions & Interview Process
The Office of Diversity & Inclusion has several initiatives in place to support students from underserved communities during the admissions and interviewing process as well as throughout their time as students.
We do not want the application process to represent an unmanageable burden or barrier to great minds coming to Feinberg. Our office is pleased to offer advice regarding your application.
Learn about LGBTQ+ life at Feinberg and in Chicago. Interviewing students can contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion to connect virtually with current Feinberg LGBTQ students through the Reach OUT campaign. This effort is supported by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Feinberg LGBTQ+ Alliance student group.
Interviewee Virtual Chats with Current Students
For interviewees from underserved communities, we offer informal virtual chats with current Feinberg students during interview season. Interviewees who self-identify from a community underrepresented in medicine on their AMCAS applications will receive personal email invitations from our Office of Diversity and Inclusion. Feinberg defines the following groups as underrepresented in medicine: Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, and students who identify as LGBTQ+.
Second Look Program
In partnership with the MD Admissions Office, we collaborate to provide additional programming for Second Look that may be of interest to accepted students from underserved communities.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion sponsors a number of initiatives to sustain students throughout their time at Feinberg and encourage open communication.
For questions about any of the programs listed on this page, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
