  • DEPARTMENT resources & facilities

    The comprehensive East Baltimore campus of the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (JHMI) is a compact health care and research community. The Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH), top ranked hospital for nineteen consecutive years, and the JHU School of Medicine, considered one of the top five medical schools in the world, offer students in the program a wide variety of educational opportunities.

    Faculty and students in the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine have easy access to all facilities of the world renowned JHMI. A large studio with natural light provides each student with an individually partitioned work space. There is also ample communal work space. The Digital Imaging Labs contain several Macintosh and PC based digital workstations, and additional resources for training in digital imaging techniques. The integral connection between the instructional curriculum and the production units in the Department allows students to observe and participate in production functions. Students in the Hopkins program are exposed to a wide range of illustration needs: clinical, surgical, health care, patient education, and research.

    Most of the School of Medicine facilities, including anatomy dissection laboratories, medical school lecture halls, and hospital facilities are within walking distance. Two Hopkins libraries serve student research needs: the medical campus Welch Medical Library, and the undergraduate campus Milton S. Eisenhower Library. Other JHU library facilites are also available to the Hopkins community. Additional resources for research in the Baltimore/Washington DC area include the following: National Aquarium of Baltimore, JHU Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Maryland Hospital & Medical School, Maryland Anatomy Board, National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institute of Health (NIH), National Museum of Natural History, and the various other museums of the Smithsonian Institution.

    Additionally, there are many rich resources for academic fine art appreciation. Among these are the following museums: The Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, and various art museums of the Smithsonian Institution

    With a large Faculty, rich resources, and a rigorous Academic Program, the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine provides a broad interdisciplinary experience of education and training in medical illustration.

    BALTIMORE city resources

    Baltimore, part of the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country, has undergone urban revitalization centered around the Inner Harbor area. Baltimoreans enjoy and support their good-time "Charm City." Cinema and theater, symphony, museums and galleries, the National Aquarium Baltimore, the Maryland Science Center, and the many fine restaurants are enjoyed by residents and tourists alike. Don't miss Oriole Park at Camdem Yards, baseball's show-case stadium, and the Ravens NFL football team at M&T Bank stadium. Horse racing, sailboating, fly-fishing, and lacrosse matches speak of other popular Maryland sports. Nearby mountains and shorelines also provide historical and scenic diversity. Only an hour from Washington, D.C., two hours from Philadelphia, and three and a half hours from New York City, Baltimore provides a good base for various activities these cities offer.

    The University Office of Special Events presents a variety of cultural programs which are available to students and faculty at reduced rates during the academic year.
