Construction Announcement

The Johns Hopkins Hospital emergency department is undergoing an expansion and renovation project to make improvements to our space. Among the upgrades, the renovation will update our waiting room, add patient care spaces and improve patient privacy.

Construction may, at times, require us to direct patient care to different parts of our emergency department. Our goals during the renovation are to minimize work disruptions and to continue to provide excellent hospital care, with a focus on safety and quality for all our patients.

Our Residency Program: Innovative, Dynamic, Fast-Paced


Our emergency medicine residency program is one of the most dynamic in the U.S, offering residents the opportunity to work and learn in a large urban hospital setting surrounded by some of the brightest medical minds in the country. The program features a four-year track, which provides residents with the opportunity to spend their final year focusing on an area of interest, locally and potentially internationally, so they can develop expertise in a specialty. This is called the Focused Advanced Specialized Training (FAST) Program.

Our Faculty: Experienced, Engaging, Challenging


From international health to disaster response to cardiac and infectious disease our faculty are nationally and internationally-recognized leaders in Emergency Medicine. Our faculty also serve on local and national medical organizations, as editors and writers for textbooks and journals, as well as advisors to organizations such as the Institute of Medicine, Centers for Disease Control and the Department of Homeland Security.
