Hospital medicine emerged as a new specialty in 1996, after the landmark publication by Robert Wachter and Lee Goldman in The New England Journal of Medicine. Our hospitalist group, located on the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (JHBMC) campus, was founded in 1997. Today, the group is its own division within the Johns Hopkins University Department of Medicine and is a diverse practice of approximately 50 physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants. The division is integral to the operations of the hospital and to the Department of Medicine’s academic and scholarly missions.
Medical education is a critical part of the mission and vision of our division. We have a wide variety of learners including: high school and undergraduate students interested in pursuing a career in health care, medical students, residents, nurse practitioners, and physician assistant students and fellows. Our learners have access to exceptional medical educators and comprehensive educational programs.
