Emergency Medicine


Julianna Jung, M.D., FACEP, is an assistant professor of emergency medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. She has been the director of medical student education in the Emergency Medicine department since 2006 and was appointed the associate director of the Johns Hopkins Medicine Simulation Center in 2011. She directs several major educational initiatives for medical students at Johns Hopkins, including the Advanced and Core Clerkships in Emergency Medicine, the Comprehensive Clinical Skills Exam and the Transition to the Wards course. Her work has been recognized with several teaching awards, including the prestigious George J. Stuart Award. She is also a national leader in education, serving as past president of Clerkship Directors in Emergency Medicine as well as several national task forces.

Dr. Jung is a strong proponent of simulation-based medical education and has emphasized experiential learning elements in all her curricula. Her primary academic interest is in simulation-based medical education. Believing that quality medical education should be accessible to all medical trainees worldwide, she has worked extensively to advance resuscitation training and the use of simulation in resource-limited international settings. She has led numerous simulation-based education initiatives and faculty development workshops in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, and was awarded an International Education Scholars Grant by the Johns Hopkins Institute for Excellence in Education. Outside of simulation, Dr. Jung has expertise in assessment methods, and is currently one of the leaders of a national consensus conference to improve clinical assessment of medical students in emergency medicine.
