Georgetown Medicine Magazine


Georgetown alumni meet the patients where they are, ideally in a fully staffed, well-equipped clinical setting. But many step out to find themselves caring for the whole patient in nontraditional, resource-limited environments. In war zone field hospitals, along mountain trails, at large public gatherings, in remote settings, after disasters around the globe or down the street wherever the need. Meet a few of the physicians practicing austere medicine, pushing the limits of patient care, and awakening the boundless expanse of human hope.
