Augusta Webster, MD, Office of Medical Education
Named after a prestigious woman in American medicine, the Augusta Webster, MD, Office of Medical Education (AWOME) is the heart of the medical school and a hub for many student activities. AWOME is charged with supporting students and faculty of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, including the academic, personal, and professional development of Feinberg medical students. Our faculty and staff provide guidance for achieving academic excellence and career development opportunities for medical student research programs, and serve as the liaison for a wide range of student support services, such as financial aid and student health services. For the centrally managed components of the curriculum, we provide logistical assistance to students and faculty, educational materials, and identification of resources for faculty development. We also support a wide range of extra-curricular programs and events to enhance the educational goals of our students. We strive to provide an open, caring and inviting environment where every medical student and faculty member is always welcome.
We are part of the Department of Medical Education, the department that centralizes much of the educational programming, innovation, and scholarship at Feinberg and its affiliated institutions.
