In 1824, GW founded the first medical school in the District of Columbia. Today, the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) continues to pioneer at the intersection of a unique location and extraordinary times.
The role of medical institutions is of paramount importance to the health issues of today and the coming decades:
- monumental changes in health care policy
- an aging population
- the need to deliver better care at a lower cost
- amazing opportunities afforded by biomedical science
These issues may seem daunting, but with your help SMHS is poised to turn these challenges into opportunities and build stunning successes.
