Baker, Jr. Dean of the School of Medicine and Chief Executive Officer of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Dr. Miller has led Johns Hopkins Medicine since 1997. Under his tenure, working with Ron Peterson, M.D., President of the Johns Hopkins Hospital, both the hospital and the School of Medicine have been ranked among the very best in the nation by U.S.News & World Report, and the school continues to rank at the top in NIH research funding.

Johns Hopkins Medicine has developed a regional, integrated health care delivery system, incorporating several hospitals in the area and All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg in Florida. It has also broadened its international presence to include relationships with medical centers in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, including a partnership to help Malaysia develop its first fully integrated, private four-year graduate medical school and teaching hospital. Dr. Miller has also led a massive rebuilding and renovation effort that has transformed both the Broadway campus and Johns Hopkins Bayview.
