Welcome from the Program Director:
Welcome to MacNeal and thank you for visiting our website.
We are one of the most established Family Medicine residencies with an unsurpassed history of excellence, as evidenced by our 100% board pass rate for over 20 years.
We have one single focus at MacNeal, and that is the quality of your education. All 11 core faculty are engaged full-time within the residency. Every faculty member works on curriculum and every faculty practices along side our residents in our busy and diverse Family Medicine Center.
Our graduates' outcomes on board pass rates, success at landing fellowships, and reputation in practice speak for themselves.
Please come visit us and learn more about the MacNeal difference, and come meet our friendly residents and faculty!
Message from our Chief Residents:
Thanks for stopping by our website! We are really excitedfor this interview season! We came to MacNeal for different reasons, one of us is a Chicago native and the other is the typical second city-er but we are both very glad that we chose to come here. MacNeal is an amazing place to do residency. As a community hospital, we run unnopposed services on wards, OB,and peds, work intimately with specialists, and see a lot of varied pathology. Our outpatient clinic is conveniently located across the street from the hospital and serves a very diverse patient population that will prepare us to practice anywhere. Everyone is very supportive and invested in our education so we feel very fortunate. We have dedicated FM faculty who have been instrumental in guiding us to become the future of primary care physicians.
Chicago is a great city to live in. Most of the residents live in Chicago (see map ) and in our time off, are busy exploring all the different neighborhoods. With a larger class size (13: great for work and call schedules) it might seem hard to maintain that family feeling but we manage to stay connected (see photos) with each other. On our days off you will find us at the numerous street festivals, relaxing on rooftops, going to sports events (Blackhawks, Bears, Cubs, White Sox, Chicago Fire), dominating trivia night, the list is pretty much endless. If you have an interest, it's here and you will more than likely be able to find a co-resident who has the same interest!
Interviewing is a stressful and fun time so we hope that you enjoy it as much as we enjoy meeting you all! Remember to breathe, this is the home stretch and you want to find a program that fits YOU so please do not hesitate to email us with questions!
