Med School

Ranks Second
Once again, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has retained its top-tier ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s edition on the best graduate schools in the nation. In the 2010 report, the school ranked—as it has for many years—#2 among U.S. medical schools. In addition to the overall ranking, the school continues as #1 in geriatrics, moves up to #1 for internal medicine and is ranked #2 in AIDS and #4 in drug/alcohol abuse, pediatrics and women’s health. The biomedical engineering program once again is ranked #1.

Engaging Employees
From June 1 through 21, Johns Hopkins Health System staff will have an opportunity to weigh in on employee engagement. The voluntary survey, which will be administered by the Gallup Organization, will consist of 24 questions on the relationship between employees and the institution. Confidentiality will be strictly protected; no one at Hopkins will have access to the individual results. The survey is easy to complete and employees will be given a secure Web site to log onto with a unique access code. “This survey will provide valuable information to help us continue to make Hopkins a great place to work,” says Pamela Paulk, vice president of human resources.
