Emphasis on Diversity & Inclusion

Northwestern University and Feinberg School of Medicine strive to make campus a welcoming environment where all students can embrace their identities.

Wellness Prioritized

We encourage our students to prioritize their wellness and to speak out if they have concerns about their training. MSTP students work closely with our office, where they can bring any concerns and help implement student-driven changes to programming. We also offer a multitude of resources to help students manage stress, maintain a healthy lifestyle and find balance.
