The Georgetown University School of Medicine was founded in 1851 on the Jesuit ideals of “cura personalis” – care of the whole person. Its reputation derives from the quality and character of its many generations of graduates, who in turn continue to give back to the Georgetown University community.
The Georgetown Clinical Society provides a forum for fellow graduates to interact in a comfortable environment, providing a forum to discuss issues related to caring for patients and improving their medical practices. In this way, the Georgetown Clinical Society strives to improve the quality of medical care provided throughout the metropolitan area of Washington, DC.
The physicians and surgeons of the Georgetown Clinical Society are a diverse group drawn from academia, research, and private practice, both active and retired. The society actively seeks the involvement of medical students and residents. Younger medical professionals have the opportunity to learn from more experienced colleagues about how to build a thriving medical practice and how to meet the many challenges facing physicians at the beginning of their careers. To further support young physicians, the Society funds a scholarship program for outstanding Georgetown University Medical students.
Dedicated to broadening the intellectual horizons of Georgetown University Medical School Graduates, the Society hosts many speakers. At Society meetings, members meet and interact with prominent scholars intellectuals, and cultural and political figures.
