Georgetown University Medical Center is one of about 140 academic health and science centers in the United States. Its goal is to combine excellence in education (training doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals, as well as biomedical scientists), cutting-edge interdisciplinary research collaboration, and improving human health through basic science and translational biomedical research. We have chosen to focus our research on a few main areas.

We are committed to the Catholic and Jesuit idea of cura personalis, which means “care of the whole person.” Our partnerships with groups in the area make our work stronger and help it reach more people.

Georgetown University Research

The Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education has always said that Georgetown University is a school with “very high research activity.” Georgetown University Medical Center is where most of the university’s research is done. Each year, it gets about $100 million in funding from outside sources to support a wide range of research, from basic to applied to translational science. The Medical Center research community is made up of experts in many different fields. Their work is known all over the world, especially in the fields of cancer, neuroscience, and global health. It is one of only a few places in the country to have both a Comprehensive Cancer Center and a Clinical and Translational Science Award, which are both given by the federal government.

Georgetown University Education

Georgetown University Medical Center trains doctors, scientists, nurses, and other health care workers who are dedicated to caring for others and meeting society’s health needs. They do this by combining academic excellence, ethics, and a commitment to the community.

Georgetown faculty and students are a group of scholars and healers who work together to help people who are sick and to make science and medicine better for everyone.

School of Medicine

The School of Medicine offers a traditional medical degree program, as well as dual medical degrees and other educational programs. All of these are based on the philosophy of cura personalis, which means “care of the whole person.”

Biomedical Graduate Education

Biomedical Graduate Education offers master’s, PhD, dual degree, and certificate programs that prepare students for academic and professional careers in the biomedical sciences.

School of Nursing

The School of Nursing builds on a 120-year history of high-quality education at the professional, advanced practice, and doctoral levels. This tradition is rooted in our Jesuit values and puts a strong focus on research and scholarship.

School of Health

Scholars and students can work together across disciplines and across the university in the School of Health to look at health and well-being from different points of view.

Medical Center Departments

See a list of the departments at Georgetown University Medical Center.

Georgetown University Hospital Patient Care

Through a clinical partnership with MedStar Health, most of the care for patients is given at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. The most well-known academic teaching hospital in the area is MedStar Georgetown. MedStar Health is one of the largest and most geographically diverse networks for providing integrated health care in the area. Many of the doctors at MedStar Georgetown are also faculty members at the School of Medicine. This means that they teach the next generation of doctors.

Cancer Care

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has named the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University Medical Center as a comprehensive cancer center. It is the only cancer center in the Washington, D.C., area to have this title. Our clinical partners at MedStar Health take care of cancer care at Georgetown Lombardi.

Through this clinical partnership, Georgetown Lombardi is the research engine for a regional program called the MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute. This helps the cancer center reach more people in the Washington/Baltimore area. The MedStar Georgetown Cancer Institute combines Georgetown Lombardi’s research on cancer prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and survivorship with clinical care, mostly at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center, but also at other hospitals and outpatient centers in the MedStar Health system. As a result, patients have easier access to clinical trials, advanced clinical cancer care, and cutting-edge technologies at more convenient locations.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that look at the safety and effectiveness of new drugs, drug combinations, treatments, or medical procedures. Clinicians hope to learn from these studies how to better tailor their care to each individual patient.

Reasons for Georgetown University Students being unable to log in 

Authentication Failed – Invalid Password (The user name or password is incorrect.)  

Students will have to try to log in again, as it was probably a bad combination of username and password. If this doesn’t work, the student will need to reset their password at Georgetown University Portal before trying again. Tell the student that there are times when the username and password get separated on the University side and there is nothing OAS can do about it. The only choice is to go to Georgetown University Portal and change the password.

Temporary Access has expired 

The student had temporary access to SAMM, but that time has now run out. The Accessibility Specialist will have to look at the student’s account and remove the “Access Expires On:” date from the Student Profile.

Fail attempt more than 5 times. 

The student has tried to log in 5 times but hasn’t been able to. Because of this, their account has been locked. The steps above are what a staff member needs to do to get into their account.

Username and password combination is wrong. Browser: XXXXXXX

The student can’t get into their account because they are using the wrong username or password. The students must try again. If they still can’t log in, they’ll need to reset their password at Georgetown University Portal before trying again.
