Advanced General Pediatrics: Education & Training

Educating the next generation of pediatricians is central to the mission of the Division of Advanced General Pediatrics and Primary Care.

Resident physicians from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Pediatrics Residency program play a critical role in the division. Resident physicians provide high quality primary care at two of our primary care locations, caring for their own panel of patients under the supervision of Attending physicians from the division.

Faculty also play active roles in other educational activities such as participation in the Education-Centered Medical Home (ECMH) program, leadership of the Primary Care Certificate program, membership in the Feinberg Academy of Medical Educators (FAME), mentorship of trainee research projects, participation in educational research, and leadership of Residency program rotations such as the Community Medicine and Advocacy (CMA) rotation.

The Division also offers a two-year Fellowship in Pediatric Health Services & Population Health Research. Fellows are mentored by faculty in the Smith Child Health Research and Advocacy Center and use rigorous research methods to develop and investigate relevant and interesting questions in pediatric population health.
