Welcome from Dr. Mark Anderson

Dr. Mark Anderson

Welcome to the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Medicine website. We pledge to use this site to reflect our work in each arm of the tripartite mission of clinical care, education and research, and the remarkable accomplishments of our faculty and staff members. As a department, we are committed to the progress of biomedical discovery, teaching the next generation of doctors and scientists and the improvement of health in our neighborhood and around the world.

This is a diverse and welcoming department that is proud to be the birthplace of many medical innovations. Our most famous forbearer, Sir William Osler, is considered the father of modern academic medicine. One of the four founding physicians of The Johns Hopkins Hospital and school of medicine, he created the first medical residency program in the country, built an environment for promoting fundamental and translational research and advanced undergraduate medical education by bringing medical students from the classroom to the patient’s bedside. Learn more.
