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.

Initiated in 2010 with a gift from pediatrician Russell Libby, M.D.'79, the Adopt-a-Doc Scholarship program provides alumni and friends the opportunity to support a current GW medical student throughout the student’s four years of medical school. Adopt-a-Doc enables tangible connections and facilitates lasting relationships that are important to future physicians, especially as they begin their journeys.

The MD and PA White Coat Initiative was established to create a lifelong connection between GW students and alumni. The gift of white coat and support of educational activities throughout their years at GW reminds students every day that the quality of their education and experience at GW depends on the contributions of those who preceded them.

The GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences has long recognized the multidisciplinary nature of medicine.

During their time at here, our students are repeatedly exposed to the critical overlap between public health, international medicine and health policy and how this intersection influences the practice of medicine.
