At the start of the new year, GW’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS), Children’s National Health System (Children’s National), and the Veterans Administration Hospital (VA) teamed up to launch a new shuttle service to ease cross-town travel between the three medical institutions.
“It’s going to allow our colleagues and faculty at those two institutes to easily participate in some of the work we will be doing for both the revision of the curriculum and our upcoming accreditation in a way that would be almost impossible without this shuttle,” said Matthew L. Mintz, M.D. ‘94, RESD ‘97, FACP, interim assistant dean for M.D. program curriculum and associate professor of medicine at SMHS. “It will also make getting from Foggy Bottom to our learning opportunities at Children’s and the VA so much easier for our students.”
A new shuttle is now available for students, residents, faculty and staff to provide transportation between GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Children's National, and the Veterans Administration Hospital. Daily shuttle service will be available Monday-Friday, 5:30am - 6:55pm. A 24 passenger mini bus will be used during the trial period.
The new shuttle service will be piloted for 90 days to determine if there is adequate ridership that would warrant a permanent shuttle service between the three medical institutions.
