Looking Back on 2012
As 2012 draws to a close, we look back on the year with excitement and pride for Johns Hopkins and the School of Medicine. Below are just a few of our favorite moments from this year.
In April, the School of Medicine announced an exciting step in its journey to nurture the next generation of health care innovators – an international scholarship program sponsored by Johns Hopkins Medicine International to provide to financial assistance to aspiring international medical students.
On May 1, the new 1.6 million-square-foot Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center and Sheikh Zayed Tower opened to the public, signaling a new era in health care for The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Also, in May, the School of Medicine welcomed 289 MDs, PhDs and Masters recipients from the Class of 2012 into the alumni family.
In July, the School of Medicine welcomed its new dean, Dr. Paul B. Rothman. He is the 14th dean of the School of Medicine and the second CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Read a message from Dean Rothman.
This fall, the School of Medicine greeted the Class of 2016! In October, the Johns Hopkins Medical & Surgical Association and Dean Rothman presented these students with engraved stethoscopes as a welcoming gift during the annual Stethoscope Ceremony and Reception.
Thank you for helping us make 2012 another great year for the School of Medicine. We look forward to welcoming you to campus in 2013 as we celebrate the Biennial Meeting and Reunion Weekend, June 6-9. For more information and updates, please visit our website.
