As Vice Dean for Education, I want to welcome you to the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Whether you’re looking to become a physician, find a clinical fellowship or residency program, hoping to pursue a life of basic science research or aspiring to join one of the best medical art programs in the world, Johns Hopkins has what you are looking for. Our medical and graduate programs are ranked among the top in the nation and our teachers, scientists, and physicians are some of the world’s foremost experts in their fields. That's what gets people interested in coming to Johns Hopkins... but it's the culture here that gets people to stay. It's a culture of excellence and an aspiration to be the best in the world at what you do, mixed with friendliness, and a spirit of collaboration that make it all possible... and wonderful to be part of.
While we are steeped in history, having been the first institution of its kind to bring together patient care, research and education, you’ll find that we also have some of the most cutting-edge research happening here. We have biomedical engineers working side-by-side with surgeons developing mind-controlled prosthetic limbs; we have geneticists working with oncologists decoding cancer genomes and looking for drug targets; and we have students designing synthetic genomes to better understand the fundamentals of life. And you can be a part of this.
I think Johns Hopkins is the best place to train and I hope you will too. Learn more about medical school admissions, graduate programs, postdoctoral and clinical fellowships here.
