Convocation 2004
John Cameron, the Alfred Blalock Distinguished University Professor of Surgery and former department chairman, will deliver the keynote address at Convocation. Receiving diplomas will be 115 candidates for the degree of doctor of medicine, 83 for doctor of philosophy and 12 for master of arts. Seven among them will receive multiple degrees. Hari Nathan will speak for the medical students; Emily Overholser, for graduate students.
This year’s event, to be held at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, will take place about a week earlier than usual, on Thursday, May 20, at 7:30 p.m.

Big New Book
More than 60 faculty in Medicine have contributed to The Johns Hopkins Internal Medicine Board Review (Elsevier. 640 pp. $89.95). The recently published, comprehensive review for certification or recertification in internal medicine was compiled by editors Redonda Miller, Stephen Sisson and Bimal Ashar and associate editors Kimberly Peairs, Gail Berkenblit and Don Martin.

The text summarizes all the information readers are likely to encounter on the exam, including the latest topics in the field, such as bioterrorism. Hundreds of case-style study questions and answers at the end of each chapter as well as a CD-ROM with 500 additional practice questions and timed exams help readers master the material. Says Miller, “Compiling this first edition was a two-year project. It’s a nice representation of the whole department pulling together.”

Johnson Departs
Steven Johnson resigned in mid-April as president of Johns Hopkins Home Care Group. During his five-year tenure, Johnson successfully directed the JHHCG companies through operational challenges while steadily improving annual margins to the current level of more than $1 million.

Dan Smith, vice president for finance for JHHCG and senior director of finance for the Health System, now is acting president.
