Health Equity Track

We envision a world where every child, regardless of their background, has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We aim to train pediatric leaders who will work to eliminate health disparities through advocacy, research, community partnership, education and clinical care.

The Harriet Lane Pediatric Residency Program has been building leaders in the field of pediatrics for more than 100 years. With a combination of innovative curricula, a world-class faculty, robust clinical experiences, and opportunities for independence and team leadership, our program has an international reputation for providing exceptional pediatric training. Located in East Baltimore, the program also has a long-standing commitment to serving and advocating for children and families in our local community as well as nationally.

To train leaders in health equity, the program will leverage world-renowned resources across Johns Hopkins to provide graduates with a unique skill set that will equip them to make an impact for children affected by health disparities.

The health equity/urban health track will leverage relationships and collaborations across the department and the institution, including:

Johns Hopkins School of Medicine

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

The Johns Hopkins University

The three pillars of the track are mentorship, advocacy and skill building, and scholarship. Read an introduction to the health equity track.
