Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program

Program Mission Statement

At Medstar Georgetown Med-Peds, we strive for clinical excellence in an environment that reflects the Jesuit motto of Cura personalis, “care of the whole person.”   Our program seeks to recognize the unique gifts, challenges, and needs of each learner and teacher in our community. Residents graduate with the confidence and competence to excel in caring for patients of all ages in both inpatient and outpatient settings.  We seek to recruit students with a diverse array of potential career pathways that build upon the common foundations of Internal Medicine and Pediatrics.  We are united by a holistic, humanistic approach to patient care whether pursuing a subspecialty, primary care, global health, transitional care, public policy, academic medicine or hospitalist medicine. This aligns seamlessly with our health care system whose mission is to serve our patients, those who care for them, and our communities.
