Welcome to the University of Chicago Department of Family Medicine at NorthShore University Medical System.

Our Family Medicine Department's mission is to treat each patient with dignity, respect, and excellence while promoting innovation in patient care, training and research. Embracing NorthShore Health System's vision to provide safe, seamless, and personal care to every person, every time, we are committed to the community we serve, including our learners and team members. The department is proud to train our University of Chicago residents in partnership with the Erie Health Center and Evanston Hospital in Evanston, IL as our vision to deliver competent and compassion care is in close alignment.

I invite you to explore the many avenues by which we contribute to the community we serve, clinical excellence, education, and research. Our goal is to create a diverse, equitable, and inclusive department that mirrors the diverse patient population, in Chicago and the NorthShore region.

NorthShore University HealthSystem is a highly recognized system by U.S. News & World Report, and the University of Chicago provides opportunities to train and practice in an environment that welcomes innovation, values quality, and is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

While our NorthShore Primary Care Medicine Fellowship is committed to training and retaining fellows that provide access to patients through the system's Orthopaedics Department.

Our research faculty is engaged in translations and outcomes research that informs our medical group providers. We are focused on research that advances pharmacogenomics, health equity, and direct patient care, and our work plays a vital role in innovative care delivery models.

Thank you for exploring our program. We invite you to journey with us as we work towards fulfilling our vision of training, retaining, and recruiting Family Medicine leaders who value quality and discovery and are committed to providing personal care to each patient, every time with humanity and kindness.
