About the Program

At Lake Forest, we combine passion for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity, the training and resources of an academic medical center, and the feel of a community hospital to create an innovative residency experience.  Our goal is to create the future leaders of Family Medicine; doctors who will be able to provide the highest quality care in any environment while working to eliminate health disparities.  Sound like you?  Welcome home.

about the program

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

The Northwestern Lake Forest program remains dedicated to advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). The historical and current barriers faced by so many, including those within the healthcare and education systems, can no longer be perpetuated. DEI is a cornerstone of our program and firmly embedded into all clinical and educational experiences. Our residents are institutional leaders in this area, and our program is looked upon to continue making meaningful advances regarding DEI. Learn More
