Our division develops hospitalists to become the next generation of physician leaders by providing opportunities that strengthen leadership skills.
All of our faculty members have dedicated time set aside for non-clinical activities, including medical student and resident education, administration, quality improvement, and research. Johns Hopkins hospitalists have leadership roles in education including the Osler Housestaff Residency Program, and as directors of clerkships and sub-internships, the Internal Medicine Consult Service, and in hospital administration.
There are also opportunities to obtain advanced degrees, such as a Master's in Public Health or Master’s in Business Administration, and take courses in quality improvement such as Six Sigma, courses in medical education such as curriculum development and teaching skills, as well as a variety of courses offered by the Office of Faculty Development and the CME office.
Faculty members are encouraged and supported to pursue scholarship.
To facilitate academics, our division features the Johns Hopkins Hospitalist Scholars Program, an innovative program designed to provide academic funding (up to $12,000 per year) for each faculty member who seeks to build an academic career at Hopkins. Our faculty also benefit from fruitful academic collaboration with other faculty in the division and across other specialties. We have a broad range of academic interests ranging from venous thromboembolic disease to system innovations that improve hospital efficiency and patient engagement.
