Preferred Email Address
The Faculty Affairs Office records one preferred email address for each faculty member, and email communications from the Feinberg School of Medicine are sent to that address. These communications include general announcements, the annual conflict of interest survey and other compliance-related messages, and messages from the August Webster Office of Medical Education related to completing student assessments.
Check the preferred email address on file with the Faculty Affairs Office by logging into the Feinberg Faculty Portal and navigating to Profile > Contact Information (for communication from FSM).
To request a change to this address, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the new address:
- You may only provide an email address in an approved domain (e.g., northwestern.edu, nm.org, luriechildrens.org, sralab.org, etc.). As a condition of your faculty appointment at Northwestern, you must either check your Northwestern email address on a regular basis or auto-forward those emails to another approved email domain. A complete list of approved domains is provided in FSM's Email Auto-Forwarding Policy.
- After the update is made by the Faculty Affairs Office, it will take one day before the new address appears in the Feinberg Faculty Portal.
- Note that making this change affects all messages sent from Feinberg centrally.
