Serving Patients at Johns Hopkins and Beyond

Serving Patients at Johns Hopkins and Beyond

As I’ve served for the last three years as director of Johns Hopkins’ Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery Department, I’ve witnessed tremendous growth—a trend that continues with each passing season.
 
Our department was the recipient of a very generous donation from
David Rubenstein, featured on this issue’s cover. The funds will allow us to offer expanded resources for our patients, as well as fund research efforts to treat hearing loss that will benefit patients everywhere.
 
One example is our expansion into the national capitol region highlighted in this issue of HeadLines on this page. We recently established a head and neck cancer program in Bethesda with three new faculty members, Drs. Wojtek Mydlarz, Nicole Schmitt and Shaun Desai. This care is comprehensive with speech-language pathologists also serving patients at this location.
 
We were also recently ranked as the top residency program in
otolaryngology–head and neck surgery by Doximity, the leading online medical network for U.S. physicians. This high ranking will help drive the most talented medical students to train here, helping our specialty grow as we treat patients from across the country.
 
Finding more and better ways to serve patients continues to be the heart of our department’s mission.
