More Top Rankings

For the 12th consecutive year, the School of Medicine was named one of the top two medical schools in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report. Of the nation's 125 medical schools, only Harvard outscored Hopkins.

For the 10th straight year, the National Institutes of Health annual summary of grants to medical schools listed the School of Medicine as the top recipient of federal research dollars.

The NIH rankings, which cover the government's fiscal year 2001, reveal that Hopkins brought in $334 million, a $33 million increase over last year. Hopkins also ranked second among the nation's medical schools in training-grant support, with $14 million.

Intranet Re-launch

When Inside Hopkins Medicine went live in January 2001, the launch marked the first time faculty, staff and students could get the latest East Baltimore campus news and announcements the moment they logged on to a Hopkins computer. Since then, the Intranet ( is generating a half-million hits and 6,500 unique users a month-many who've shared their ideas about what else they'd like the Intranet to offer. And site administrators have been listening, says Inside Hopkins Medicine editor Kara Lundell. "Based on user feedback, we're making the site more user friendly and interactive, more of an online community than a bulletin board."

Among the upgrades in the works are message boards, an interactive events calendar and an automated announcement system that will allow users to post items online. Down the road, off-site access also will be available.

The site's re-design debuts the week of May 6. To try out the new features, stop by the Broadway Corridor in Hopkins Hospital on May 7 and 9, the Preclinical Teaching Building lobby on May 8, or the special Inside Hopkins Medicine cyber café (location to be announced) on May 10 for a coffee break and giveaways.

And don't forget to explore the site on your own. From May 6 through May 23, complete the online survey and you could win a new Dell laptop computer.
