The GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) is an academic medical center at the forefront of health and discovery.  We are committed to doing the right thing for patients, always.  This duty drives our mission of: 

  • Developing the physicians, health care providers, and leaders of tomorrow
  • Driving forward scientific discovery 
  • Embracing the challenge of eliminating health disparities
  • Working with energy and passion to improve the health of the communities we serve

The last year has changed medicine and science forever.  Like so many other health systems, the GW Medicine Community has been on an incredible journey. We were called to treat, teach, and learn under extraordinary conditions.  Yet because of our supporters, we were able to accomplish remarkable things:

  • The first location in the DC region to offer a COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Site
  • A Moderna Vaccine trial site 
  • SMHS students created D.C. COVID-19 Connect, an online community resource guide

The generosity from our community is a constant reminder for our students, caregivers, and educators that we are not alone. But instead, we have a vast network of people behind us, urging us on every day. 

With your support on Giving Day, we can continue to achieve great things. At SMHS, we teach, heal, discover, and serve because of the dedication and contributions of our alumni, friends, and partners.  

“With serving marginalized communities at the root of my prior clinical experience, I hope to build upon my work and treat patients from medically underserved communities. Whether that is at home or abroad, I look forward to uplifting a community not only through medicine but also through the advocacy of my patients’ needs. GW and its scholarship make these goals more attainable for my future.” Bill Chan, MD Class of ’22
