The Georgetown University School of Medicine Executive Student Council, Office of Student Affairs, and Dean’s Office introduced a new lecture series to the Georgetown community in Fall 2012: Past Medical Histories.  Dedicated to providing its audience with a glimpse into the careers of Georgetown’s distinguished faculty members, this lecture series brings the Georgetown University School of Medicine community together biannually for lessons, reflections, and community. 

Speakers are invited to address (but are not limited to) questions such as:

“What is the most important lesson you have learned over the course of your career?” 
“How did you learn that lesson?”
