Welcome to MacNeal Family Medicine!
Thanks 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 at the MacNeal 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 large, well-established program that genuinely feels like a large family. Our residency thrives from the quality of people that work here, including our friendly staff, extremely knowledgeable and approachable faculty, and amazing residents. We pride ourselves on a well-rounded Family Medicine experience and draw residents from around the country for many reasons. The true heart of the program, however, lies in our hardworking staff and faculty who are committed to creating an outstanding learning environment. With nearly 40 residents, we have a call schedule that allows us to maintain a great work/life balance.
Alison is from North Carolina and was excited about the opportunity that residency provided to explore a new city. She was drawn to MacNeal because of its strong reputation and commitment to training well-rounded Family Physicians. Tiffany was born and raised in California, but was attracted to the supportive faculty and breadth of training at MacNeal. They initially bonded over the infamous Chicago winters and daily Metra commute to work.
Despite the fact that both of us are not from the Chicagoland area, we have really enjoyed our time here at MacNeal and find it to be both a unique and rewarding place to train. We love coming to work every day because we get to spend time with our MacNeal Family. There is always a friendly face to support us in the clinic or the hospital. We’ve made such great, long-lasting relationships with our co-residents, faculty, and staff that we still want to spend time together outside of work and explore all that Chicago has to offer.
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 everyone is always planning something fun to do. We spend much of our time off grabbing dinner and drinks, going to concerts, relaxing on the beach, attending sporting events, celebrating birthdays, weddings, and baby showers!
We remember how stressful the interview process can be, so please do not hesitate to contact us with ANY questions you may have (our emails are listed in the "Our Residents" section) We both have loved our time here, and hope you find MacNeal to be as amazing as we do. We look forward to meeting you!
Tiffany and Alison
