This March, I celebrated my second year back at Johns Hopkins. When the department launched in 1914, it was composed of just a handful of Johns Hopkins faculty headed by Dr. Samuel Crowe. Now, our department counts 46 full-time clinical faculty, 10 research faculty, 22 affiliate staff audiologists and speech-language pathologists, as well as our residents and fellows. Subspecialties within our field didn’t exist 100 years ago, not to mention the incredible technology and knowledge that allow us to further our research and continue to improve patient care.

At our centennial year, our department has been consistently ranked as the best in the country by U.S. News and World Report. We have helped countless patients in numerous ways—by curing cancers, restoring hearing, solving swallowing problems, and reconstructing deformities, to name just a few.

Our numerous residents and fellows that spent time at Johns Hopkins over the years have benefited from their intensive training to help many more patients throughout the world. We are very proud of our collective footprint.

Come join us as we celebrate our Centennial on June 20 and 21, 2014. We know that the next 100 years will be as transformative as the last, and we have a lot to celebrate.
