Dr. Donna Magid, a Johns Hopkins Medicine Professor of Diagnostic Radiology, holds joint appointments in Orthopaedic Surgery and Functional Anatomy and Evolution. As Director of both  the JHU SOM Horizontal Strand in Diagnostic Imaging, and Undergraduate Medical Education in Radiology, she develops and oversees educational programs and curriculae from Gross Anatomy through the Transition to Wards and clinical years to ensure a firm foundation in and comprehension of the intelligent, safe, effective use of imaging in medical practice and of appropriate consultation with Diagnostic Imagers. Dr. Magid is also recognized nationally and by the students for intense involvement with career mentoring and The Match, professionalism, and the 'Hidden Curriculum", emphasizing precise appropriate use of medical English and the non-verbal aspects of professional demeanor and comportment. Her areas of clinical specialization include Musculoskeletal and Emergency Medicine radiography and  joint procedures, including aspirations and pain-response studies, particularly in difficult patients who might otherwise require anesthesia for same.

After receiving her BS summa cum laude in Psychology at Tufts University in Boston, she completed an M.Ed in Adolescent Psychology at Boston University. Her MD from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine was followed by one year out of the JHU system for internship at Harvard's Cambridge Hospital in Boston, after which she returned to JHM for Radiology Residency, Radiology Fellowship in CT and US , and subsequent faculty positions. Her career has been 'biphasic'; after a decade focused on nationally recognized Orthopaedic and Body CT research, she became heavily engaged with medical student and resident education and mentoring. After a decade as Co-Director of Resident Selection and Assistant Residency Program Director she shifted her focus, as she participated in the development and debut of JHU SOM's new curriculum, to the success of that curriculum and to the medical students. 

This focus and passion has been rewarded with multiple awards both at Hopkins and nationally, for teaching excellence and for published research in radiology education.  Dr. Magid is participating in the writing and design of the ABR's new national mandated licensing exam for Diagnostic Radiology. more
