The Johns Hopkins/University of Maryland plastic surgery residency program was created in 1989 with the merger of each institution’s plastic surgery residency program, both accredited by the ACGME, under the leadership of Dr. Jack Hoopes at Johns Hopkins and Dr. Nelson Goldberg at the University of Maryland.
The combined program provides resident rotation experiences at all of the major teaching hospitals in the Baltimore area (Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, University of Maryland Medical Center, and the Baltimore VA Medical Center). If a major reconstructive case is going on in Baltimore, a resident in our program is participating in it. Residents also rotate at community hospital services (The Curtis National Hand Center at MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, Saint Agnes Hospital, and Suburban Hospital) and several unique services including Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and The Dellon Institutes for Peripheral Nerve Surgery to maximize the breadth of their training experience.
The mission of the Johns Hopkins/University of Maryland Plastic Surgery Residency Program is to train residents to provide the highest quality plastic surgery care to their patients, to perform cutting edge research that will guide future patient treatment, and to become future leaders in plastic surgery for the country and the world.
The department offers two types of residency programs:
