Welcome to MacNeal Family Medicine!

Davis Yang, MDThanks for visiting this site and learning more about our program.  

We are proud to be one of the oldest family medicine programs in the country and the first in Illinois.  We celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2019, along with the specialty of family medicine.

We are a 12-12-12 residency and we have fellowships in Sports Medicine and faculty development.   

We offer comprehensive family medicine training at a community hospital, affiliated with the Loyola University academic tertiary care center.  Our practice is in a diverse community with urban and suburban patients of all ages.

We developed our resident-centered curriculum to give you the best learning experience, including hands-on procedure training, didactics, and exposure to specialists while practicing full-spectrum family medicine.

We are located in the suburbs of Chicago, close to downtown Chicago and all the amenities of a world class city.   The Metra train station is across the street from the hospital.

Our family medicine center is the largest single practice in the Loyola Medicine network, and is located conveniently next to MacNeal hospital.  The parking structure, our practice building, and the hospital are connected by an underground tunnel.

We have a low core faculty to resident ratio, and all of our faculty practice alongside our residents in the family medicine center.   So, your preceptors are also your practice partners.  We work closely with our residents and enjoy personally getting to know them.

In the hospital setting,  inpatient medicine, OB, and pediatrics are unopposed experiences at MacNeal and supervised by the same core faculty that precept in the outpatient center.

I am also a graduate of the MacNeal residency program.  Between my time as a resident, faculty member, and program director,  I have been in the MacNeal residency for the past 26 years.

I would love to tell you more about the program and the wonderful residents and faculty of MacNeal.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Message from our Chief Residents

Welcome to our website and thank you so much for taking an interest in our MacNeal family! MacNeal is a well-established family medicine program that genuinely feels like a large family.  Our residency is special because of the quality of people who work here, including our friendly staff, highly approachable faculty, and terrific residents.  We pride ourselves on our well-rounded, unopposed training experience, and draw residents from across the country for many reasons.  The true heart of the program is in our emphasis on continuity of care, all in one location! 

A little more about us: Vivian was looking for a community program in Chicago which would be intellectually challenging while also providing an emotionally supportive learning environment. In the last few years, she has found passion in working with MacNeal’s diverse patient population—patients with unique needs, who have trusted MacNeal Hospital with their care for decades.  Siri is from Detroit originally but was drawn to the appeal of a community program in a big city.  After interviewing at MacNeal, she realized the encouraging and supportive community was the exact environment she wanted to train at to become a well rounded family physician.  

We have really enjoyed our time here at MacNeal and find it to be both a unique and rewarding place to train.  On the inpatient side, we love that our three services (adult, pediatrics, and obstetrics) are run by family medicine residents and offer the opportunity to learn from both family medicine faculty as well as knowledgeable specialists.  In these teams, we quickly become bonded with our co-residents, which cultivates a sense of true belonging.  In the clinic, you’ll find us talking and laughing with our colleagues in our resident offices as we prepare for a busy day of clinic ahead.  If we have a question for faculty, we know there is always a friendly face in the precepting room around the corner!  This closeness has allowed us to build long-lasting relationships with our co-residents, faculty, and staff. It makes coming to work every day a real joy. 

MacNeal is located just outside of Chicago, with more than half of our residents living in the city and the rest in the surrounding suburbs.  Chicago is an incredible place to live and with many fun things to do.  We spend much of our time off grabbing dinner and drinks, relaxing on the beach, attending sporting or comedy events, and celebrating birthdays, weddings, and baby showers!  And with nearly 40 residents, someone is always available - we have a call schedule that allows us to maintain a healthy work/life balance. 

We remember how stressful the interview process can be, so please do not hesitate to contact us with ANY questions you may have.  We have both loved our time here, and hope you find MacNeal to be as special as we do. We look forward to meeting you! 

 

Best wishes, 
Vivian & Siri
