Mission and Core Values

GME Mission

The mission of the Howard University Hospital Graduate Medical Education Program is to provide a unique and outstanding educational experience for its post graduate trainees, with emphasis on teaching them to be compassionate, care and committed to serving the African-American and other historically disenfranchised groups in the community while providing educational opportunities to a diverse group of physicians, who will not only be distinguished in service, teaching and research, but will also seek solutions to human and social problems, addressing disparities in the health care delivery system in the United States and throughout the world.


GME Core Values

The unique experience provided to post graduates will produce committed health care practitioners, espousing the core competencies of compassionate patient care, outstanding medical knowledge, professionalism, excellent interpersonal and communication skills, and who continue to develop and improved in practice based learning and systems based practice as defined by the Accreditation Council for GME.  These core values govern all HUH sponsored graduate medical education programs.
