Your Caregivers & Support Services Team

During your hospital stay, you will encounter a variety of healthcare professionals.

Physicians, hospitalists and other caregivers wear identification badges issued by Northwestern Memorial or Northwestern University.

Hospitalists, who are physicians on the medical staff specializing in hospital-based medicine, and other physicians wear white or gray coats.

Medical residents and interns wear long white coats and medical students wear short white coats.

Color-coded apparel is worn by nurses and other caregivers as well as those who support your care. If you have a question about the role of any member of your care team, please ask your nurse.
