Public Health & Preventive Medicine Residency

Public Health & Preventive Medicine Residency

The two-year, ACGME–accredited residency has concurrent academic and practicum phases.

The program is focused on preparing physicians with skills to improve the organization and delivery of preventive and chronic care services in a population framework, with a focus on strategies to reduce health disparities. The educational goal of the program is anchored by an ethic of service, recognition of the dignity of our patients, respect for human diversity, and commitment to human rights.

Our trainees benefit from a diverse training experience created through collaboration and partnerships between Stroger Hospital and Northwestern Medicine (the aligned academic medical center formed by the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (NU-FSM) and Northwestern Medicine), other academic institutions on Chicago’s west side Medical Center campus, and with public health agencies in the Chicago metropolitan area.

  • Possession of MD or DO degree from an ACGME accredited or dual accredited institution

Physicians with career interests in public health who will have successfully completed a PGY-1 year and completed Step III of the USMLE by the time of entry into the program can also be considered. Documentation that a clinical PGY-1 year in an ACGME accredited program (internal medicine or family practice preferred) will be completed prior to initiating the Preventive Medicine program is an absolute requirement.
