Georgetown Summer Medical Institute

Due to the current pandemic, the format of the GSMI 2021 program is currently uncertain.  We are optimistic that Georgetown University will be open to students, and all courses will be held on campus. However, there is a chance that the pandemic will cause our courses to move to a virtual format.  We will keep this website and all potential students updated as soon as we have more concrete plans. Thank you for your interest in our program, and we will look forward to sharing these great medical courses with you this summer!
