What Sets Us Apart

For nearly a century, MacNeal Hospital located in Berwyn and committed to care for our community. Here at MacNeal, you will get the opportunity to work with not only trainees from MacNeal Hospital but also trainees from University of Illinois and Northwestern University who are rotating at MacNeal. In inpatient teams students from many different medical schools in Chicago area will be working with you. You get the opportunity to teach and learn from them.
Opportunity to work one on one with many specialists
We have several electives available for you to choose and during these electives you work directly with a senior specialist and learn from them. In surgical subspecialties you get the opportunity to see patients in their clinics but also join them in operating room and have hands on experience.
One of the advantages of MacNeal Transitional Year Residency Program is Internal Medicine and Family Medicine residency programs are medium sized therefore all residents and attending physicians know each other. We aspire to create a family-like atmosphere. We have end of block happy hours, fall and spring social events, annual resident retreats, faculty and resident book club throughout the year.
Residents can choose to do a research elective. They have to submit their goals and objectives which would include the background, method and the name of their mentor. We would review these and contact with your mentor about the details of your project.
International Away Rotation
For residents who would like to experience and work in a different healthcare system and culture can apply for an international away rotation. Residents choose the location and make the contact themselves and provide us their goals and objectives along with the mentor. Historically our residents completed rotations in Australia, Kenya, Israel, Panama, Spain, Thailand, China, Sudan.
