GW Healing Clinic

The GW Healing Clinic is a volunteer clinic operated by the students of the George Washington University that provides primary care to underserved patients in our community regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. The Clinic offers high quality care for patients in a confidential and respectful environment, while enriching the educational experience of our medical, physician assistant, and public health students.

The GW Healing Clinic needs physician volunteers! The Clinic is expanding it's involvement in the community and will now see patients at two different locations: Bread for the City in the Shaw/Howard neighborhood and in Prince George's County in Maryland. Internal/family medicine physicians or specialists who would be comfortable in a primary care setting that are licensed in Washington, DC or Maryland are needed to commit to one shift per month, either on Tuesday or Wednesday nights, from approximately 5:00-8:30 p.m.

How does the Healing Clinic operate? Two nights per week, a team of dedicated medical students, physician assistant students, public health students, and volunteer physicians provide primary and preventive care, non-emergency urgent care, health education, laboratory testing and counseling services for our patients. After clinic hours, the volunteer physicians help facilitate an educational dialogue amongst the students, with the aim of having students teach each other about the etiology, pathogenesis and treatment of diseases common among our patient population, as well as the psychosocial factors that relate to those diseases. This entirely student-run effort affords GW students and physicians the opportunity to more fully engage in our community and with one another.
