Our Neighborhood

The decisions that will shape 21st-century American medicine are being made right here in Washington, D.C. Owing to both location and reputation, the George Washington University is a valuable contributor to the debate and deliberations that frame those decisions.

The George Washington University shares its Foggy Bottom neighborhood with the World Health Organization, the Department of State, and the World Bank. The White House is just seven blocks away. GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences faculty members and students testify at Congressional hearings, advise agencies that make health care policy decisions, serve as White House Fellows, and provide medical care to the nation’s leaders and foreign dignitaries.


The Foggy Bottom Metrorail stop is right at the steps of the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Metrorail and Metrobus lines connect the campus to other parts of the city and suburbs. Kennedy Center, National Airport, the National Zoo, historic Union Station, and the National Institutes of Health are all just minutes away.
