MEDIA ADVISORY: Georgetown Medical Students Take a ‘Brake’ to Host First Annual Auto Fair this Saturday


What: Imagine the life of a medical student, juggling countless hours of studying and grueling exams while trying to meet the requirements of clinic and showing up to rotations on-time. Now imagine not having a safe, reliable and affordable car to get to and from your classes and volunteer positions, and to enable you to meet the other demands of medical school. At Georgetown, students are required to have a car by their third year in order to attend clinic and rotations.

With these challenges in mind, and the knowledge that most Georgetown students have little or no time to shop for a car, Georgetown University School of Medicine (GUSOM) students are hosting their first annual Auto Fair!

GUSOM has partnered with local automobile dealerships such as Criswell, Farrish, and Safford Chrysler/ Jeep/ Dodge and Ourisman Chevrolet/Buick/GMC to offer significant discounts on leasing and purchasing for GUSOM medical students. Dealers will provide 15 vehicles for students to view and test-drive and offer financial consulting to students who are prepared to purchase an automobile.

When: Saturday, June 5; 11:00am – 4:00pm

*Media must RSVP no later than Saturday, June 5th, at 10:00am by emailing/calling

Where: Georgetown University School of Medicine’s Med-Dent Building,
4000 Reservoir Road, NW, Washington, DC

Who: Local representatives from:
Criswell, Farrish, and Safford Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge
Ourisman Chevrolet/Buick/GMC
Ally Financial
