Biomedical Graduate Education

Recent years have been a powerful reminder of how quickly the health landscape can shift—and how important it is to have a deep, diverse bench of medical, scientific, and other health-minded experts.

For more than three decades, Georgetown University’s Biomedical Graduate Education (BGE) programs have trained sought-after scholars who go on to a range of compelling careers. Whether they end up leading groundbreaking research, practicing medicine, or contributing their specialized expertise to another industry entirely, Georgetown BGE graduates do so with an abiding commitment to the common good.

We must invest in the programs and people poised to create a safer, healthier future. By increasing scholarship support for master’s students, investing in Ph.D. programs, and creating more postdoctoral fellowship opportunities, we will strengthen Georgetown’s talent and research pipeline—and position our BGE programs for further grants and growth.

Fueling scientific breakthroughs and high-impact careers

With 32 graduate programs, including 6 Ph.D. programs, BGE represents the largest footprint of graduate students on the Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) campus. We are educating experts across an array of disciplines spanning basic and translational biomedical science, clinical and health science, data informatics, policy and ethics, industry science, and more.

An investment in BGE is an investment in future leaders across numerous industries—and in Georgetown’s ability to contribute broadly to better health. BGE programs expand and diversify the academic pipeline, develop an essential class of medical professionals who advance treatments and therapies, and build vital professional expertise.
