Georgetown University Medical Center

Washington, D.C.


Georgetown University, the nation’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit University, seeks an Executive Vice President for Health Sciences and Executive Dean of Medicine (EVP) at the Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC).


Located in the heart of Washington, DC, Georgetown is a leading R-1 research University steeped in the tradition of liberal education with a mission dedicated to Catholic, Jesuit principles including public service and Cura Personalis or care of the whole person. Locally and globally, Georgetown’s vocation is to care for the most vulnerable among us. With a dedication to mission and consistent, impressive leadership, it is ranked among the country’s top twenty-five universities.


GUMC is an internationally recognized academic health center with a four-part mission of research, teaching, service, and patient care, which is provided through its clinical partner, MedStar Health. As the nation’s largest, most prominent Catholic academic health center, GUMC is home to the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Health, the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Biomedical Sciences. GUMC also plays a key role in the University-wide Georgetown Global Health Institute and has a distinct focus on ending health disparities in Washington, DC, and beyond.


The EVP is tasked with advancing the resources and mission of the various components of the Medical Center and working effectively with the leadership of MedStar Health. In carrying out the responsibility of overseeing GUMC, the EVP will provide a compelling strategic and ambitious vision to both enhance and advance research and teaching in medicine, health, nursing, and biomedical sciences. This will require astute human and fiscal resource management and the fortitude to address the management challenges inherent in a complex and multi-faceted academic medical center. The EVP will strengthen and build a forward-looking and innovative leadership team, identify new funding through engaged philanthropy and diversification, elevate and grow GUMC’s research impact, and leverage opportunities for GUMC to collaborate and partner in research, teaching, and clinical activities with the Main Campus, MedStar Health, and other local and national external partners. By creating new opportunities, maximizing current resources, and effectively collaborating among faculty, the EVP will continue to position GUMC as a national top-tier research organization.


Reporting to Georgetown University’s President, the EVP also serves as a senior officer of the University and works closely and regularly with the President, the Provost, the Executive Vice President and Dean of the Law Center, the Chief Operating Officer, and the University’s senior leadership to shape the overall future of Georgetown.
