Resident Life

Life as a Northwestern Resident

Here at Northwestern, we truly value our relationships with one another. Residency is so much more enjoyable when surrounded by amazing colleagues. Our residents make sure to prioritize social interactions both within and between residency classes when outside of the work setting. Traditionally, one resident from each class organizes a monthly "brunching and bonding" event, which we refer to as "B&B." Each rotation block, we try to have team dinners and outings. Birthdays, weddings, holidays, new babies and housewarmings bring us together to celebrate. There is never a dull moment. The relationships we make with our co-residents make us better obstetrician/gynecologists and are truly one of the greatest strengths of our program.  


Life in Chicago

Our campus is located in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago, along the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan. Our neighborhood is full of restaurants, grocery stores and shopping options. Take advantage of Chicago's beautiful LakeFront Trail located steps away from campus. The 18-mile path is the perfect outdoor location to run, walk, bicycle or Rollerblade and features a wide variety of amenities, such as beaches, gardens, playgrounds, soccer fields, volleyball nets and tennis courts.

Living in the City

Streeterville is only one neighborhood in this exciting city. Many of our residents live in the West Town, Gold Coast, River North and South Loop. We spend a lot of time exploring the endless unique pockets in this city. No matter your extracurricular interests (sports, art, fitness, food, theater and more), there is so much to do.
