Deepening workplace connections and developing meaningful careers.

At Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, we aspire for employees to find their niche and feel motivated to do their best work. While our staff are connected in our shared mission to improve human health, the Staff Engagement Committee was formed to deepen that connection and address professional needs specific to Feinberg staff.

Staff Matter at Feinberg

Without the dedicated efforts of staff members in every department, center, institute and administrative unit, the successes we’ve achieved in becoming a premier academic health center simply would not be possible. I’m exceptionally proud of the medical school’s commitment to engaging and inspiring one another to do our very best work. This commitment helps us all excel, but it is also essential to our larger mission of improving human health.
