GW COVID-19 Resident Physician Aid

This campaign ended on May 21, 2020, but you can still make a gift to George Washington University by clicking here!

The current global health crisis reminds us how vital it is to invest in our future physicians and health care providers.  GW resident physicians are beginning their medical careers at an unprecedented time.  They are on the front-lines learning and treating patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.  For residents, this is a uniquely challenging time, yet it calls for them to rise to the occasion and practice medicine under extraordinary circumstances.

Residents are taking on great personal risk to serve and protect our community, an oath they pledged to uphold, but as they try to shield their families and loved ones they need our support to continue.  
Your gift helps meet the most urgent needs including:

  • Alternative lodging to allow residents to isolate themselves from loved ones
  • Daycare options, as most childcare facilities have closed
  • Protective Equipment, to ensure their health and safety 
  • Hot meals when they’re needed most
  • Your gift allows GW resident physicians to continue to be there for each other, our patients and the community.

Your donation today is supporting our doctors of tomorrow!  GWU Resident Physicians have begun their medical careers at an extraordinary time. They are treating and caring for our community at this very moment, but they are faced with challenging decisions about how to care for themselves and their families.  Your support brings safe transportation, safe lodging away from their families, and hot meals through long shifts.

“… I am very fearful of exposing anyone in my family, especially my four month old child.  It was a huge relief to know that I could stay in alternate housing to minimize contact with my family while I was taking in-house call at the hospital.” GW Resident Physician William Fenner Griffin, MD
