Academics and Training

Our residency program is fully integrated between Rush University Medical Center and John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. A resident’s time is mainly split between these two insitutions, with some time also spent at Rush Oak Park and Elmhurst Hospital, our affilated community hospitals. Rush and Cook County Hospital are located within blocks of each other, facilitating the day-to-day lives of our residents. What does this mean? It means training at busy, urban medical centers with complex patient presentations and exposure to all aspects of modern surgical techniques and multidisciplinary teams.
