Dr. Jung is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She has been the Director of Medical Student Education for her department since 2006, and the Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center since 2011. She directs several major educational initiatives for medical students at Johns Hopkins, including the Advanced and Core Clerkships in Emergency Medicine, the Comprehensive Clinical Skills Exam, and simulation curricula for the Transition to the Wards and Transition to Internship courses. For the past two years, she has also directed the Transition to the Wards course for students at Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Dr Jung is a strong proponent of simulation-based medical education, and has emphasized experiential learning elements in all her curricula. Her primary academic interest is in simulation-based medical education and assessment. Due to her experience and expertise in medical education, she was recently named to the executive committee of Clerkship Directors in Emergency Medicine, the national organization for EM educators. Believing that quality medical education should be accessible to all, she has worked extensively to advance resuscitation training and the use of simulation in resource-limited international settings. She recently received the International Education Scholars Award through the Johns Hopkins Institute for Excellence in Education, and in that capacity is developing a peer-education program for pediatric resuscitation skills to be implemented in Africa and Asia. She is particularly proud to have been recently recognized for her contributions to medical student education with the prestigious George J. Stuart Award.
