Fulfilling potential as people and as an organization.

Successful people in satisfying careers contribute in a powerful way to the success of an institution. We believe very strongly that when our employees grow personally and professionally, Northwestern Memorial’s ability to fulfill its mission and vision grows in equal measure.

Individual and Career Development

Northwestern Memorial offers a variety of programs aimed at supporting our employees’ personal and professional development:

  • Tuition assistance: Following a one-year waiting period, full-time and part-time employees are eligible for our tuition assistance program.
  • Tuition discounts: available for full-time employees who attend certain Northwestern University classes.
  • Professional development: Through our training center, NM Academy, we offer a variety of clinical and non-clinical learning activities and resources, including training sessions, conferences and professional development programs. Employees can also participate in training and professional development programs outside the Academy with a manager's approval.
