Serving more than 7,000 healthcare professionals through approximately 120 partnerships in over 45 countries, The Office of International Medicine Programs is dedicated to contributing to the SMHS mission of improving the health and well-being of our local, national and international communities. Our goal is to provide life-changing opportunities to build the capacity of other countries and share the latest advances in medicine and healthcare.
The Interdisciplinary Student Community-Oriented Prevention Enhancement Service (ISCOPES) is a service-learning program that places first-year medical students, physician assistant students, health services management and leadership students, graduate public health students, and physical therapy students on interdisciplinary teams to effectively engage in intensive, health promotion experiences.
Whether looking to interact with others with similar career interests, searching for an opportunity to serve, or craving a cultural or artistic outlet, students in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences can satisfy their extra-curricular interests through the dozens of student organizations and associations present on the GW campus.
SMHS offers students a number of opportunities to get involved in their community with service projects and initiatives.
The Track Program at GW SMHS is one of the most unique components of a GW medical education. With nine elective paths offered through the Office of Student Opportunities, the program allows students to formally pursue an area of interest beyond the core curriculum. Through distinct learning objectives, special seminars, one-on-one mentorship, and hands-on experience, students gain a broader health care perspective and exposure to leadership opportunities.
