Audiovisual Technician, Integrated Learning Center (ILC) - Georgetown School of Medicine

Georgetown's location in the nation's capital - an international crossroads, home of the renowned National Institutes of Health, and one of the world's most culturally exciting cities - certainly makes it unique. More distinguishing, however, is Georgetown's philosophy. The School of Medicine is heir to the long and rich Catholic and Jesuit tradition of caring for the sick. From its inception, Georgetown has been committed to the pursuit of knowledge in service of the community. The Georgetown medical experience is centered in "cura personalis" - care for the psychological, spiritual, social as well as physical well-being of the person.
