House Staff Support

The Johns Hopkins House Staff Council gives house staff a voice in forging hospital policies that affect patient care, the community and the house staff itself, such as the efficient use of their time and salary and benefit planning.

“JHM&SA is a needed source of support for projects that are vital to the functioning and well-being of residents, both within and outside the hospital,” says Michael Awad, M.D., Ph.D.,  and former President of the House Staff Council.

JHM&SA funds have helped offset the costs of Council public service projects such as Habitat for Humanity, support for spouses of house staff through the Medical Auxiliary, scholarship money for child care and funding for the house staff lounge and social events.

Most recently, JHM&SA contributions have led to creation of an emergency fund for residents who are in times of personal crisis.
