Community Report

A new state regulation requires all nonprofit hospitals in Maryland to submit information on the programs they provide to the communities they serve. The information will be incorporated into an annual, statewide community benefit report. Simultaneously, it will provide Hopkins Hospital with a thorough and detailed accounting of all its community programs.

Each JH Hospital department is required to provide information on community activities for FY04 and every year thereafter. To report data on your department’s community activities, log on to the Community Benefit Reporting Web site, www.insidehopkinsmedicine.org/ccs/.

Reporting deadline: April 30. Info: Michael Jenkins, JHHS Office of Community Affairs, 410-614-0745, mjenkins@jhmi.edu.

Match Making

March 18 was a day of celebration as senior med students learned which residency programs they’ll enter on July 1. The annual Match Day event kicked off with Medical Student Society President Hari Nathan’s version of Howard Dean’s now infamous “I Have a Scream” speech: “We’re going to Texas! And California! And Baltimore!”

Although participants in the National Resident Matching Program can find out online if they’ve successfully matched to a program, Hopkins continued with its traditional group ritual, in which students gather to open the white envelopes at a reception at Turner.

So Long, Herlong

He has written some 1,800 dean’s letters and represented Hopkins medical students to residency program directors all around the country, but now, Frank Herlong will step down as associate dean for student affairs, a post he has held for 15 years. Counselor to an entire generation of medical students, Herlong told students in early March that this year’s graduation would be his last as their dean. Students were surprised and saddened; former students, now residents, called to sing his praises. Herlong will remain on the full-time faculty and return to his work in hepatology.
