Georgetown School of Medicine


Founded in 1851, Georgetown University School of Medicine offers future physicians a superior and supportive environment for learning the art and the science of medicine. The guiding principal of the School of Medicine is cura personalis—or care of the whole person. Ours is among the most selective medical schools in the nation—for the class of 2015, we received 11,598 applications for 196 places.

The mission of Georgetown University School of Medicine is to educate a diverse student body, in an integrated way, to become knowledgeable, ethical, skillful, and compassionate physicians and biomedical scientists. Our graduates are dedicated to the care of others and to the health needs of our society.

In support of Million Hearts™, The Georgetown University School of Medicine will emphasize the science of cardiovascular risk factor control and disease prevention at all levels of the medical curriculum. Specific emphasis will be placed on the public health toll of vascular disease and the beneficial effects of aspirin (when appropriate), blood pressure and cholesterol control, smoking cessation, and reducing intake of sodium and trans fat. Medical students will have opportunities to put ABCS messages into practice during clinical rotations at MedStar-Georgetown University Hospital, the Washington Hospital Center and the Hoya Clinic.
