Answers to common questions from patients and families
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 Division of Hospital Medicine, located on the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (JHBMC) campus, was founded in 1997 and is a diverse practice of approximately 60 physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and staff. The division is integral to the operations of Johns Hopkins Bayview and to the Johns Hopkins Department of Medicine’s academic and scholarly missions. Members of the division also participate in work nationally and internationally as leaders, educators, and researchers in the field of hospital medicine.
