Yesterday's Chicago Tribune laid bare a troubling reality: Evanston Northwestern Healthcare (my institution) is in a spat with Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine over some form of interesting affiliation fee. I had no idea there were such fees, but hey, I'm just a doctor. Guess you gotta pay to play.
I had never heard of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science until I read the article. It seems that's the new name they gave the old Chicago Medical School. I'm embarrassed to say that I had to use Google Maps to know where they were located. (I guess I don't get out very much. Yikes, it's smack dab in the Great Lakes Naval Training Center and the North Chicago VA - geez, guys, I just retired!)
Can't wait to catch the buzz tomorrow morning. I wonder if it has anything to do with this? Rumor has it that Northwestern University Medical Center downtown was interested in the Rush North Shore Medical Center acquisition, too.
Thank you for your explanation.
If you hear anything more, could you keep us posted?
