The founding physicians of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine created a revolutionary new medical curriculum that for the first time integrated a rigorous program of basic science education with intensive clinical mentoring. The original faculty created a curriculum designed not just to impart knowledge, but to create it. The "Hopkins Model" soon was adopted by virtually every medical school in the country.
Today, a newly revised curriculum integrates basic science education and clinical instruction with community-based learning. Education in medical history, ethics, even literature informs and expands the learning experience. Throughout the curriculum, the emphasis is on small-group and seminar learning, with private practitioners playing an expanded role. Students engage face-to-face, work shoulder-to-shoulder with many of the world's leading physicians, scientists and medical educators. The line between learning and teaching disappears into a continuum of discovery.
