Resident Testimonials

Danielle Robinett

Danielle Robinett, MD

Intern, Thayer Firm

"When I first interviewed at Johns Hopkins, I was struck by the ACS rounds. The intern presented the case and interpreted the images and studies with such humble confidence and intelligence; the junior, senior, and ACS (chief) resident each contributed relevant facts about the physiology, pathology, and key learning points regarding the case. I remember reflecting on this experience at the end of the day: that each residency program is made up learners from all different backgrounds- different medical schools, different experiences, different strengths and weaknesses. But it sincerely appeared then, and still holds true now, that despite the initial learning curve, the Johns Hopkins Osler program molds each of its interns and residents into competent, outstanding physicians. And that was a program worth being a part of."

Andrea Jonas, MD

Junior Assistant Resident, Janeway Firm

"It has been an unparalleled opportunity to learn the practice of medicine on the Osler service. The very environment is structured around the principles of mentorship, clinical excellence, and delivering the highest level of patient care. The firm system provides the opportunity to develop longitudinal experiences with both attendings and housestaff while gaining independence in the practice of medicine. Especially unique to the program is the dedication of each ACS to the development and education of their interns. Throughout this past year I felt supported and encouraged by my ACS while simultaneously challenged to push my learning and clinical skills forward. I am grateful to be developing bonds with both attending mentors and fellow housestaff which I'm certain will continue well into the future. Every day is an immense privilege to practice medicine at Johns Hopkins knowing that these experiences will shape my approach to patient care for the rest of my career."


Vineet Agrawal, MD, PhD

Senior Assistant Resident, Loncope Firm

"I was immediately drawn to the Osler Medical Residency program on my interview day. Joining rounds on the Osler Medical Service was a surreal experience, watching the overnight intern present and manage so many sick patients on her own. The senior resident was also incredibly knowledgeable, and I loved the emphasis placed on teaching on the O. As a hopeful physician scientist, my goal was to find the strongest fundamental training in internal medicine that would serve me well for the rest of my career. Not only have I had the opportunity to work with attending physicians who truly are master clinicians, but I have also had the good fortune of learning from very talented co-residents. I am also surrounded by faculty who are the epitome of physician scientists. I have seen how it is possible to seamless translate clinical medicine from the bedside back to the bench and vice-versa. These experiences have not only yielded multiple mentors in current faculty and lifelong friends in co-residents, but have also provided me with a clear blueprint for my future career path."

Ryan D. Lang

Ryan D. Lang, MD

Senior Assistant Resident, Longcope FIrm

"As a medical student, I was told that my years in residency would be the most important and transformative phase of my clinical training. When looking for the best fit, I was drawn to the Osler Internal Medicine Residency at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. A few years later, as a senior resident at Johns Hopkins, I am confident that I made the right choice. Longitudinal relationships formed with co-residents and an assistant chief-of-service in a designated firm—an Oslerian tradition—ensure that our patients benefit from a close-knit team of young, skilled doctors. Every intern and resident on the team is truly invested in the well-being of each patient. And as a member of the Urban Health Primary Care Track, I see the greater picture of caring for patients with limited resources. Not only do I receive excellent inpatient training, but I also gain expertise in caring for the homeless, recent immigrants, and other at-risk people. This residency program ensures my preparation to be a leader and innovator in primary care for medically underserved populations."
