Community Service and Advocacy

Georgetown University School of Medicine requires each student to complete a total of 20 hours of community service prior to graduation. Cura Personalis, Care of the Person, is one of the many Jesuit values Georgetown University upholds in order to offer its students a unique educational experience. This value suggests individualized attention to the needs of the other, distinct respect for his or her unique circumstances and concerns, and an appropriate appreciation for his or her particular gifts and insights.
