The Johns Hopkins Genes to Society curriculum begins with a grounding in what we’ve learned from the Human Genome Project about human variability, risk and the ability to modulate disease presentation and outcomes. We have also brought in a wealth of knowledge in the social and behavioral sciences as well as public health and policy content, with an aim toward improving societal health outcomes.
By providing centralized management of the medical student curriculum, the office tracks formal curricular events, manages the use of the Armstrong Medical Education Building resources, provides program evaluation and continuous quality improvement of the curriculum, supports faculty development and innovation, and ensures compliance with the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) medical education program standards.
We value excellence, teamwork, inclusivity, professionalism, and effective and equitable use of resources.
