Welcome to The Institute for Excellence in Education
Committed to Leading the Way in Medical and Biomedical Education
The mission of the Institute for Excellence in Education (IEE) of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is to promote, value and advance the educational mission of the School of Medicine while enhancing the School of Medicine's leadership role in medical and biomedical education nationally and internationally. To guide this mission, IEE has identified four guiding principles or "pillars" into which all of our decisions, work and programs are aligned.
In addition to these guiding principles, for the 2018-2019 academic year, the IEE is highlighting the theme of “Respect, Teamwork and Civility: Embracing our Educational Mission.” This theme will be reflected in our ongoing work and programs. While the IEE has chosen this year to champion the theme, we recognize how important respect, teamwork and civility are every year, every day, and in every action. Visit our About section here to Learn more about this theme of “Respect, Teamwork and Civility."

Foundational Principles for Teaching and Education
Medical and biomedical education is the foundation of academic medicine. IEE felt it was important to explicitly state and codify our institution's educational principles. It is our hope that the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Foundational Principles for Teaching and Education defined here will be inspiring to Johns Hopkins leaders, educators and learners, to help align all teaching and educational efforts.
The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Scientist's Oath
Responding to data on the perceptions of scientists which suggest a moderate public distrust of scientist's motivations, members of Hopkins' Graduate Student Association (GSA) and School of Medicine faculty members studied the subject and composed an article describing their solution. The decision was made in 2014 to begin a Coating Ceremony for PhD candidates, to impress upon them, in a public forum, the professional and ethical responsibilities and values they accept upon finishing studies. Developed for and recited at this ceremony, the Scientist's Oath was created from input of faculty and students alike and is reviewed and updated biennially.
