A Day in the Life
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is proud to announce the launch of its “A Day in the Life at Georgetown University School of Medicine” photography campaign – a reoccurring exhibit that features the connections amongst our diverse students, faculty and staff.

The photography campaign highlights student, staff and faculty engagement in the following areas:
- Student Learning Context
- Staff & Faculty Workplace Context
- Collaborative Events Context – Students/Staff/ and/or Faculty
- Wellness/Fellowship Context – Students/Staff/ and/or Faculty
Please enjoy these photos taken by our photographer, Kevin Benamer!

“I am inspired by my colleagues at the School of Medicine on a daily basis for the ways they handle challenges, for the ethic and dedication they invest in their work as well as their passions. There are countless resources and people to inspire us if we choose to look. I think that is the key. If we look for inspiration, it’s all round us. There are amazing people all around us doing everyday things, but doing so in a way that is inspiring.” – Nicole M. Houle, Assistant Dean for Admissions.

“Since 2000, I have also taught a “self-care 101″ class to small groups of medical students each year. There, my role is to create a safe place for students to practice transparency and full disclosure about their wellness behaviors. They seem to learn best from seeing me model those behaviors. They seem to learn best from seeing me model those behaviors. P.S. – In the spirit of full disclosure, sometimes I am not a very good role model, and sometimes I am blessed to do an awesome job.” – Dr. Donna Cameron, Associate Professor and Director of Service-Learning, Department of Family Medicine.
