Georgetown University School of Medicine is one of the most competitive medical schools in the country, and MedStar Health has one of the largest and most innovative graduate medical education (GME) programs in the country. Advancing health through medical education, research, and innovation is core to MedStar Health’s vision and strategy. Serving as MedStar Health’s medical education and clinical partner, Georgetown University enhances our “advancing health” portfolio through collaborations in teaching, scholarship, and research.
Together, we provide a continuum of learning from medical school through clinical practice and elevate our programs to benefit medical students, residents, fellow, clinical faculty, and our patients.
MedStar Health clinical faculty and residents and fellows are the primary teachers and mentors for medical students at Georgetown University School of Medicine.
