Georgetown University School of Medicine Campus
About
Georgetown's location in the nation's capital - an international crossroads, home of the renowned National Institutes of Health, and one of the world's most culturally exciting cities - certainly makes it unique. More distinguishing, however, is Georgetown's philosophy. The School of Medicine is heir to the long and rich Catholic and Jesuit tradition of caring for the sick. From its inception, Georgetown has been committed to the pursuit of knowledge in service of the community. The Georgetown medical experience is centered in "cura personalis" - care for the psychological, spiritual, social as well as physical well being of the person. It lays the groundwork for the intellectual and ethical formation of physician healers committed to the clinically competent care of and the well being of their patients and dedicated to the health needs of the underserved in our society. This philosophy finds expression in research and in scholarship, in the dialogue of science and service, as well as in the dialogue of faith and technology.
Mission
Guided by the Jesuit tradition of Cura Personalis, care of the whole person, Georgetown University School of Medicine will educate a diverse student body, in an integrated way, to become knowledgeable, ethical, skillful, and compassionate physicians and biomedical scientists who are dedicated to the care of others and health needs of our society
