Department of Medicine | Georgetown University

“Let us preserve health through knowledge and education.”

The Department of Medicine at Georgetown University is steeped in a rich tradition of excellence built upon the legacies of leaders in cardiology, hematology and oncology, and gastroenterology. We are proud of this tradition of excellence, and it is our goal today to further that reputation by remaining on the cutting edge of new developments in medical education, scientific and clinical investigation, and clinical care. Central to our success is our commitment to scholarship at all levels of medical training.

The Department of Medicine’s strategic plan focuses our resources and developmental efforts on three missions: teaching, clinical service and biomedical research. As with most successful academic departments of medicine, the strength of the department arises from its outstanding faculty of physicians and scientists.
