About Cura Personalis

SOM students talking to a Georgetown University Jesuit.

The Catholic, Jesuit concept of cura personalis, which translates as “care of the whole person,” suggests individualized attention to the needs of others, distinct respect for unique circumstances and concerns, and an appropriate appreciation for singular gifts and insights. This ideal, the founding principle of Georgetown University Medical Center, has special resonance for the scientific and educational missions of the university.
