The program really wants to see students succeed. One of the best things about being in the program is the listserv sent out by the Career Center and professors. They are constantly making students aware of job, internship, and volunteer opportunities. The location for the program is also amazing. DC is a Tourism and Hospitality capital. So, you are learning information that can be applied as soon as you walk out the schools door.

Degree: Health Sciences

GWU SMHS has its strengths and weaknesses like any other medical school. A handful of the faculty are highly invested in student learning, as are the deans. There are also a handful of course directors and department heads who are both receptive and responsive to student feedback. The student body is very diverse and fosters a student culture of collaboration. The curriculum is being completely revamped, which will hopefully lead to improved integration of material and more team and case-based learning.
