Dean Susan Cheng

Welcome to the Georgetown University School of Medicine!  I am excited that you are considering pursuing your medical education with us.

My name is Dr. Susan Cheng and it is my honor to welcome you to our website and our Office for Diversity and Inclusion, which we launched in August 2015. GU School of Medicine is committed to cultivating, promoting and advancing the diversity and inclusion of students, faculty, and staff. As one of the top medical schools in the country, we live and breathe our value of Cura Personalis “or Care of the Whole Person” through our diversity. Furthermore, by contributing to a diverse and inclusive campus, we will ensure that our students become physicians who embrace all dimensions of diversity in order to serve the growing health care needs of the diverse populations we serve.

From our rich assembly of student groups on campus to vast opportunities to learn and serve in community health contexts, Georgetown School of Medicine strives to celebrate its diversity on campus.

All the best,

Dr. Susan Cheng, Ed.L.D., MPP
Senior Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion
