School of Medicine Diversity

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine considers diversity as one of the core components of medical education. We are committed to supporting learners via one-on-one mentoring, recruitment and retention of a diverse student body, and sponsoring activities to increase diversity. 

Meet Nate Irvin | Assistant Dean for Medical Student DEI

Nathan Irvin, MD came to Johns Hopkins to grow and strengthen the existing diversity, equity and inclusion infrastructure across the school of medicine and the Johns Hopkins Health System. Creating a safe, respectful and supportive learning environment requires intentionality to understand and support the nuanced needs of students, particularly those from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine and science (UIMS).

Q&A with Nathan Irvin, assistant dean for medical student diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).

The School of Medicine Has a New DEI Champion
