About Baltimore

The Johns Hopkins Medicine Baltimore Community

Baltimore, Maryland is a large, urban city on the East Coast of the United States. Just 40 miles north of Washington, D.C., the city offers a unique blend of historic charm, ethnic heritage, and urban vitality. From the dynamic Inner Harbor to the rolling estates on the edges of the city, Baltimore offers a wealth of cultural and recreational activities.

Johns Hopkins Medicine has been an integral part of the Baltimore City community for more than 125 years. Many Johns Hopkins Medicine faculty and staff members are proud to call the local neighborhoods of Baltimore City their home. Our employees live in historic Fells Point, Upper Fells Point, Butcher's Hill, Canton, Federal Hill, Mt. Vernon, Downtown and many other neighborhoods in Baltimore City. Click here to see a short video clip on how many Johns Hopkins Medicine employees make up a large part of the Baltimore community.

We acknowledge that the City of Baltimore has had its challenges recently, just like any other large, urban city. These challenges are part of what makes working at Johns Hopkins Medicine interesting and exciting. There are many clinical and research opportunities that come from our community's complex medical needs that serve as wonderful learning opportunities for our Administrative Fellows. Although these challenges are present in Baltimore, they are not what defines the city. Baltimore is truly is a fun, vibrant city and a wonderful place to live.
