Julianna Jung (Jules) 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 2005, and the Associate Director of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center since 2011. She holds leadership positions in several major educational programs for medical students at Johns Hopkins, including the Advanced and Core Clerkships in Emergency Medicine, the Comprehensive Clinical Skills Exam, and the Transition to the Wards and Transition to Internship courses. More recently, she traveled to Malaysia where she directed a simulation-based Transition to the Wards course for students at Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine. Her curricula consistently receive high accolades from learners, and this year’s graduating class at Hopkins recognized her excellence as an educator by electing her as the recipient of the prestigious George J. Stuart Award.
Dr. Jung is an avid proponent of simulation-based medical education, and has given numerous lectures and workshops on simulation in the US, Caribbean, Africa, and Asia. She believes passionately in the ability of simulation to improve clinical care and ultimately patient outcomes, and strives to expand the use of simulation in medical education throughout the world. Her primary academic interests are in simulation-based resuscitation training, simulation-based assessment, and the use of simulation in resource-limited international settings. She is currently an International Education Scholar, funded through the Johns Hopkins Institute for Excellence in Education to develop a peer-education program for pediatric resuscitation skills to be implemented in Africa and Asia. She looks forward to further opportunities to use her skills as an educator to improve the health of patients and populations around the globe.
