Connect and Volunteer

As Georgetown University School of Medicine alumni, you play a great role in the school’s past, present and future. Georgetown remains your home – a place where you learned and matured as doctors, researchers and scientists.

Among the best ways to stay involved with the school is by connecting with current students, young alumni and each other. You can make a difference in the lives and careers of students and young alumni through your support and the sharing of knowledge. Students are eager for your experience-based insight on such topics as residency, specialty practices and what being a doctor is really like.

Connecting with students and young alumni can also help alumni hone skills as influential leaders, fulfill the Georgetown spirit of service to others and personally invest in the continued success of the school and the university.

  • Medical Reunion

    Reunite Every Five Years – Whether you are five minutes or 5,000 miles away, your reunion is a great time to be back on campus with your friends and families. If it is your reunion year be part of the action by joining your reunion committee, which is responsible for planning all the fun and informative events, lectures, campus updates, tours and parties for your class. Interested in becoming a Class Ambassador for your reunion? Let us know as many years in advance, so you will be involved with planning a great Reunion!

  • Dine with a Doc

    Organized by the Medical Students Alumni Ambassadors program, this mentoring opportunity gives alumni an opportunity to socialize with current medical students in a small group setting. If you are in the neighborhood during the day, take a few first- and second-year medical students out to lunch. Or, you can choose to host a dinner at your home, take a group out for a round of golf, enjoy a sporting event together, or just take a few students out for dinner. This is an excellent way to share information about your career and personal experiences.

  • Love a Medical Student Day

    As a Georgetown medical alum, you remember how busy and often stressful this time of year can be for students. Current Georgetown medical students are hard at work this semester so please take this opportunity to write a sentence or two to show your support and encouragement!

  • CURA Program

    The CURA Program (Connecting and Uniting Residents and Alumni) pairs Georgetown medical alumni from across the country with recent School of Medicine graduates as they head out to begin their residencies in hospital centers across the nation. 

    As a medical alumni mentor you can offer wisdom from your own experiences, encourage the new residents as they walk the path that you have already followed, and provide insight into the real world of practice.

    The goal of the program is to match each graduating School of Medicine student with a Georgetown medical alum in the community where they will be undertaking their residency program. Additionally, wherever possible, the alumni match will be associated with the resident’s hospital or have the same specialty interest.

    Registration for CURA 2023 will open in the spring of 2023

  • School of Medicine Mentorship Opportunities

    Professional Identity Formation (PIF): Cura Personalis FellowshipThe Cura Personalis Fellowship was created to serve as a platform for physicians to establish a strong and diverse foundation in existing and emerging concepts in physician professional identity formation. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean and the Office of Medical Education, Cura Fellows are woven into the new Journeys Curriculum at GUSOM from the very beginning — meeting a small cohort of mentees during the start of their orientation.

    Fellows have a unique role in facilitating the formation of student physicians, all while challenging their own personal and professional development. Medical students will present a curated summative version of their e-Portfolio to their Academic Family & Professional Identity Formation Coach at the end of the Foundational Phase, and at the end of their medical education.

    Independent Scholarly ProjectThe Independent Scholarly Project (ISP) is a requirement for all Georgetown University School of Medicine candidates and must be completed prior to graduation. Students are required to complete a scholarly project that answers (or attempts to answer) a research question under the supervision of a mentor. Mentors may be faculty at Georgetown University Medical Center or at its affiliate hospitals. Additionally, mentors from outside institutions are also acceptable as long as the student receives prior approval from the Director of the ISP program. Mentors are not responsible for providing stipends to the medical students. There is a limited amount of stipend money that is made available each year through the Office of the Dean of the School of Medicine for first year medical students. Learn more >
