About the George Washington University

The George Washington University (GW) was founded in 1821 and is located in Washington, D.C., the heart of international law, health care and business. Our location and close relationships with prominent health care agencies and their officials distinguish the opportunities we provide our students.

School of Medicine and Health Sciences

The George Washington University (GW) opened the School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) in 1825, four years after the university’s founding, making it the 11th oldest medical school in the U.S. GW established its first medical department in 1840 which would grow to become the first general hospital in the nation’s capital. With the expansion of its infirmary in 1859, SMHS became one of the first schools in the nation to teach clinical medicine.

In 1928, GW’s Department of Medicine split into the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing and the University Hospital. This grew to become the GW Hospital in 1948. By implementing external clinical rotations in 1960, GW became one of the first universities to offer students access to the best career preparatory experience. GW introduced its Health Sciences programs in 1972. SMHS continues its legacy of preparing leaders on the cutting edge of health care.

Located at the hub of international science, health policy and business, GW links you to renowned experts and institutions in the field through our program faculty and industry collaborators. Our programs are designed around emerging fields in cooperation with leading agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), and are led by active experts in the field.
