Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
MD Education


We offer text pagers to M3 and M4 students so they can maintain contact with the hospital, medical school and their fellow students. Pagers are distributed to M3 students on Introduction to Clinical Clerkships day at the beginning of the third year. Students are required to turn in their pagers before graduation or before leaving the Feinberg School of Medicine.

Students who are having problems with their pagers or need a replacement can stop by the August Webster, MD, Office of Medical Education at Ward 1-003 or email Linda Daniels for help. Lost or broken pagers can be replaced for a fee of $69. Payment is accepted in form of cash or check made out to Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
