Myron L. Weisfeldt Distinguished Visiting Professorship in Diversity

Each year the Department of Medicine invites a prominent  physician, scientist or national leader to be a Diversity Visiting Professor at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The Professorship includes opportunities for the department’s leadership to meet with the honoree and the minority faculty to discuss issues related to minorities in academic medicine. The honoree also meets with housestaff and fellows. One of the highlights of the visit is when the visiting Professor gives Medical Grand Rounds.
