    Advocate Lutheran General has an Integrative medicine (complementary/alternative) clinic you can rotate through. it's also the strongest program in chicagoland. christ is also really strong, and you can rotate through the integrative med clinic, but their intern year is 12 months of q4/q3 call. northwestern/st. joseph is decent, and located in a great neighborhood right on the lake, and they said you can do away electives in integrative med if you want. don't waste your time with norhtwestern/enh in glenview: it's too far away, the program is totally disorganized, and a lot of residents have left in the past few years. illinois masonic was kind of in flux this year, so i didn't apply. i know the program director there left to go work at christ (and he's AWESOME).

    i wrote a longer, more detailed response earlier, but then my computer froze. hope this helps!

    Hi dimples, your response was very informative...Could you provide more details of Christ and NW-glenview FP programs? I am highly considering these in Chicago..Pros and Cons..please.

    Also, possibly a little about Cook County-Loyola-Provident and St. Elizabeths?

    cook county and st. elizabeth, doesnt really concentrate on alternative curricula, but instead concentrates on service to the more under served and poorer communities..

    So dimples, overall (with alt. med not a factor) how would you rate these programs?

    1. UIC-Christ
    2. Cook-Loyola-Provident
    3. Northwestern-ENH
    4. St. Elizabeth

    Any thoughts? and why?

    Thanks in advance, I appreciate it.

    p.s. How do these 4 compare with UT-houston and UTSW(dallas) for fam. med if you're familiar with them?
