What's Happening in CGI

Visiting Scholars

Visiting students from Yonsei University, Wonju School of Medicine


Recently, the GW School of Nursing and its Community and Global Initiatives received three nursing students from Yonsei University, Wonju School of Medicine for a two week academic/cultural immersion experience. These students experienced all GW School of Nursing has to offer including simulation, lectures, GW Hospital observation and mentoring from nursing leaders. They also gave a presentation on nursing in Korea, and the differences between the United States and Korean health care system. We wish them safe travels home and look forward to remaining in contact as friends of GW School of Nursing.

Community and Global Initiatives welcomes Dr. Yoko Yamamoto, Assistant Professor from Kobe City College, School of Nursing. She is a visiting scholar at Children's National Hospital who is interested in learning about undergraduate nursing education in the United States. Thank you to everyone for welcoming our international visitor into your classrooms, lab and clinical areas and to those who shared your expertise in online/distance learning and clinical simulation.

International Clinical Opportunities

Each semester, CGI holds informational sessions for students interested in completing clinical hours in international settings. Please feel free to check out our informational session (previously held for Cohort 17 and 18) as well as review the informational flyer. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at CGI by emailing [email protected].

International Volunteer / Information Websites

We often get asked about other non-GW international programs and organizations who provide relief work and healthcare outreach. If you're interested in international medicine and healthcare, CGI has compiled a list of online resources including NGOs, government agencies and academic institutions. Note that this list is not comprehensive but it is a great way to gain knowledge, get involved, and educate yourself.
