The George Washington University Regional Medical Campus at Sinai Hospital

Collaborating for the Future of Care



GW Collaboration Logo

In 2023, The George Washington University (GW) School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) collaborated with LifeBridge Health to establish a Regional Medical Campus (RMC) at Sinai Hospital.


Through this RMC, Sinai Hospital hosts cohorts of third- and fourth-year medical students for their clinical years, providing bright and ambitious future clinicians the opportunity to practice in a community-focused hospital with a strong emphasis on primary and continuity care in a population health environment.

What is a Regional Medical Campus?

According to The American Association of Medical Colleges, a Regional Medical Campus (RMC) is a distinct and separate location from the central campus of a medical school where students spend one or more years of their training.



Medical Education in a Cutting-Edge Environment

The RMC is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) through the accreditation of the MD Program at the main GW SMHS campus. Formal administrative and educational linkages to the main campus are maintained, ensuring that students can continue to access all resources on the GW Foggy Bottom campus.

Teaching faculty within the GW SMHS Regional Medical Campus at LifeBridge Health will receive faculty appointments at GW SMHS.


This RMC will enable a cohort of up to 30 third-year and 30 fourth-year GW medical students to complete the first two years of didactic classroom education in Washington, D.C., at GW’s Foggy Bottom campus, followed by a full year of clerkships during the third year and specialty electives during the fourth year at Sinai Hospital and the LifeBridge Health system sites.
