Emerging from a collaborative partnership between Erie Family Health Centers and Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine, the Northwestern McGaw Family Medicine Residency Program at Humboldt Park is an 8-8-8 program that promotes quality education and patient care through clinical excellence, scholarship, and leadership. We continue to be rooted in our identity as one of the original Teaching Health Center residency programs, which further enriches our development of family physicians who are leaders in primary care and advocacy for underserved communities. Residents provide care for patients primarily at the Humboldt Park location of Erie Family Health Centers as well as Swedish Hospital.
