Community Teaching Sites
Saint Agnes Hospital is a nonprofit, Catholic hospital in Southwest Baltimore that has provided care to the community for 150 years. For the last twenty years, Saint Agnes has served as a community hospital teaching venue for Johns Hopkins pediatric residents. During a total of three and a half months of the first two years of training, Hopkins Pediatric residents attend deliveries and care for children on the Heldrich inpatient service (11 beds) and in the newborn nursery. Residents learn how “bread and butter” inpatient pediatrics is practiced in a community hospital setting where subspecialists or intensivists are not always immediately available. Supervision is provided by a group of full-time Hopkins hospitalist faculty and by three experienced neonatologists, all of whom have an interest in bedside clinical teaching. Emphasis is placed on resident clinical diagnosis, evidenced based medicine, communication, leadership and teaching. The well baby nursery rotation provides an opportunity to develop skill in neonatal resuscitation, care of the term newborn and education and counseling of new parents. Our residents value their time at Saint Agnes as a complement to the quaternary care setting offered by the Hopkins Children’s Center. There are weekly grand rounds, a conference schedule designed to emphasize the kinds of pediatric problems likely to be seen at St. Agnes.
Located in eastern Baltimore, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center’s pediatric clinic provides care for a largely Hispanic community. Approximately 20% of the pediatric residents participate in continuity clinic at this site, located about 15 minutes’ drive east of Johns Hopkins Hospital.
