Additionally, our residents have the opportunity to care for a diverse and underserved patient population under the guidance of invested faculty, who emphasize medical decision-making based on the best available evidence and patient/ family needs. Scholarly work is encouraged with opportunities for housestaff to get involved with basic science and clinical research, quality improvement, and educational projects. We also seek to support and provide mentorship for residents who desire to pursue their own innovations or community oriented projects. Finally, we are able to do all this within the wonderful city of Chicago, where there are always things to do, places to go, and wonderful things to eat. We encourage you to apply and come see if we would be a good fit for you.
