The Rehabilition Department has several locations throughout the hospital. Patient treatment occurs seven days a week on most units; therefore, weekend work often is required. Since the staff has a wide variety of schedules, it's best to check with your clinical supervisor for your specific work hours.
During the fall and winter, JHBMC offers free influenza vaccination to all employess (including students and interns). Flu shots are required by employees, interns and students who work within six feet of patients.
Professional, casual attire is the normal attire for therapists. Scrubs are acceptable in certain areas. Lab coats are optional. Jeans, tank tops, sandals, open-toed shoes, tight fitting or low-cut blouses revealing cleavage are not permitted.
Hospital ID badges will be provided on the first day. They must be worn within the hospital at all times.
Make-up and Hairstyles
Students must present a neat appearance. It is important that hairstyles, including facial hair, not interfere with efficiency. Make-up must be conservative and suitable for work. Hair color should be of a natural shade.
Use of jewelry should be kept to a minimum and appropriate to the type of setting in which you work. Small earrings, a watch and minimal rings are the standard. Necklaces and bracelets are permitted, but should be kept to a minimum. Avoid wearing multiple earrings in each ear.
No tattoos should be visible. Students also should refrain from wearing body jewelry on areas other than the ears, including the nose, tongue, eyebrow, etc. Remember to consider the clientele you are treating and your professional image.
Fingernails should be natural and no longer than 1/4" beyond the fingertips. Artificial nails are prohibited. Nails should be trimmed and filed so that they are not sharp. Nail polish is acceptable in light, traditional colors.
On your first day at the Medical Center, after getting your ID badge, you should sign up for parking. This can be done at the parking office (located in the Mason F. Lord Center Tower, suite 133).
Currently, parking costs $61 per month (subject to change). The cost can be paid monthly or for the entirety of the internship at one time. Payment can be made at the parking office between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Meals can be purchased at the Bayview Cafe.
Student housing is not provided. A list of housing opportunities is available upon request; however, none are endorsed by Johns Hopkins or the Rehabilitation Department.
