Our Leadership

On September 22nd, 2009, Dr. Edward Miller, then Dean of the Medical Faculty and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine and Dr. David G. Nichols, then Vice Dean for Education announced the creation of the School of Medicine’s Institute for Excellence in Education (IEE), naming Associate Professor of Medicine Joseph Cofrancesco Jr., M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.P., as its inaugural director.

Dr. Cofrancesco, whom the Deans acknowledged as “one of our most respected educators and clinicians at Hopkins,” directs the IEE toward fulfilling its charge to “lead the way by developing methods to measure and critically evaluate teaching and educational programs, set standards, inspire and support new educational techniques, methods and technologies, encourage educational scholarship, and give value to and reward the teaching done by all faculty.”

On July 10, 2014, Dr. Cofrancesco was named the inaugural Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Institute for Excellence in Education Professor of Medicine.
