Program Leadership

Program Leadership

In the Department of Medicine, our 200 and more faculty members — from instructors to professors — take an active part in teaching.

At the University of Chicago, our residents benefit from a training program in which most faculty physicians have full-time academic appointments at the University. Under the support, supervision, and guidance of our faculty, residents take full responsibility for patient care and assume a major role in teaching of medical students and allied health professionals.

While we are proud of our traditions and organization, the most critical ingredient of any clinical training program is, of course, the quality of the residents themselves. Here at the University of Chicago, you will find a housestaff whose vigorous enthusiasm for hard work, learning, and teaching is matched only by its collegiality and support for one another. The commitment that our housestaff demonstrate, not just to the patients and to medicine, but also to each other sets this program apart.
