Giving Opportunities

When you make a contribution to SMHS, you help a physician-in-training come closer to her dream of treating underserved children. Or a physician-scientist present his findings on autism and young adulthood. Or a young researcher who is determined to find a vaccine for HIV/AIDS. However you choose to contribute, your support changes lives.

INNOVATIONS IN MEDICAL EDUCATION WHITE COAT INITIATIVE OFFICE OF STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES

GW continues to push the envelope with technology and curriculum to train the best physicians possible. GW's innovative approach to medical education has made us a pioneer in the use of technology to teach medicine in ways that are now emulated by other leading medical schools.

The white coat initiative was established in 2001 by a GW Alumnus who wanted to create a lifelong connection between GW medical students and the GW medical alumni.

The Office of Student Opportunities (OSO) is a resource to all students in the SMHS providing a large database of national and international programs for summer study, electives, conferences, and other educational opportunities, many of which are funded.
