Women in Psychiatry Leadership

Today in Johns Hopkins Psychiatry, we see the profound influence of women leaders in every aspect of our work - From inpatient units, research laboratories, educational ranks, to Executive Committees...

Building on our school of medicine’s historical precedent -- set in 1893 -- that women should be admitted on an equal basis with men, a spirit of equality and innovation drives our excellence in medical education, research and patient care. We had an early start in elevating women to the highest ranks in our department, with Dr. Esther Richards serving as our outpatient director from 1920-51.

Here, we offer a window into the women who are leading Johns Hopkins Psychiatry to the next great era of discovery, clinical innovation and improved mental health for all, while spotlighting our strong commitment to a diverse and inclusive workforce.
