Clinical Experience

GMU is committed to improving the quality of healthcare for our community through student and faculty participation and developing highly skilled graduates.

The clinical clerkship level of the curriculum is devoted to gaining clinical experience by our medical and nursing students.

In the last two years of our medical program, students undergo integrated clinical learning experiences with core and elective clerkships in different disciplines, learning common disorder representatives of those seen in clinical practice.

GMU has ON-SITE CLINICAL TRAINING available for its students by affiliation with several local hospitals including Georgetown Public Hospital, a 600 bed teaching facility managing about 10,000 inpatients and approximately 100,000 outpatients per month.

Students are not only trained via simulation and observation but in their final year are encouraged and directed to gain additional hands-on clinical experience. This ensures that highly motivated students acquire the skills necessary to become practice-ready medical and nursing professionals.

We are continuously improving our clinical program by developing new partnerships and affiliations developed locally as well as internationally.

Qualified medical and nursing students also have the option of completing their clinical training in the United States, United Kingdom or other locations. 

Our clinical faculty is fortunate to have experienced and highly skilled clinical educators who are committed to teach and give our students opportunities to care for patients under their supervision.
