School of Health

The School of Health builds on Georgetown’s 170-year commitment to health and medicine, and advances the strong foundation established when its departments were housed in the former School of Nursing & Health Studies. It is one of two new schools (along with the School of Nursing) launched in 2022 to create new opportunities for growth and collaboration.

At the School of Health, faculty and students work collaboratively across disciplines to address human health and well being. We convene diverse perspectives—from science, health, medicine, policy, law, economics, and the humanities—to better understand urgent challenges, and to find solutions.

The School of Health embraces the Jesuit principles that shape the entire Georgetown community, including the pursuit of knowledge in service to the common good. Fueled by this commitment—and with crucial support from our donor community—we are educating students for careers in fields such as global health, health policy, public health, health education, medicine, physical therapy, scientific writing, consulting, health management, and more.

Laying the foundation for a healthier future

We prepare students to contribute to a more equitable, evidence-driven, and values-based health care system. Undergraduates receive a broad liberal arts education balanced with the natural and behavioral sciences; they also have opportunities to conduct independent research and to intern at health care facilities and agencies here in Washington, D.C., and abroad.

All programs in the School of Health focus on cura personalis—the care and development of the whole person—by educating students for a meaningful life, challenging them intensively, and supporting them in their learning.
