The GW Healing Clinic is the umbrella organization for several clinical volunteer sites in the D.C. and Maryland area that are run by the students of the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. We provide primary care to the underserved patients of Prince George’s County at our Bridge to Care clinic, place students at Whitman Walker Health as HIV counselors and testers, and partner with other community organizations to carry out our mission. Our mandate is to offer high quality care for our patients in a confidential and respectful environment while enriching the educational experience of our medical, physician assistant, and public health students. This entirely student run effort affords GW students the opportunity to more fully engage in our community.
Quote from our Founders: "The idea behind starting the Healing clinic was not only to give back to the community but to also bring together community, GW students and faculty. The results were more humbling and exhilarating than anticipated, especially in terms of overwhelming support from all of the above groups."
- Irina Brennan, the GW Healing Clinic co-founder
