Medical students can obtain scrubs at the Northwestern Memorial (NM) scrub machines using their registered NM ID card to obtain access to green and blue scrub machines. In order to obtain access to green and blue scrub machines, students must register their NM ID badges. If the student receives a replacement badge, it must also be registered at Green Scrub Registry and Blue Scrub Registry. Students are provided a maximum of four scrub credits for green and for blue scrubs.

Students must return their soiled scrubs in order to receive clean scrubs from the machines. Scrub machine locations are:

  • Olson Pavilion, fourth floor
  • Feinberg Pavilion, sixth floor
  • Prentice Women's Hospital, sixth floor and ninth floor

If you are having trouble accessing the scrub machines, please contact Linda Daniels and she will notify NM Facilities.
