Office of Medical Student Affairs
The principal objective of the Office of Medical Student Affairs is to serve the needs of the students in the many aspects of life in the School of Medicine. A student who has a question about the experience here and who is uncertain as to an appropriate resource for an answer should check with this office. Anyone needing assistance in adapting to this environment, or advice about personal or professional matters, should visit the Associate or Assistant Deans for Medical Student Affairs. The range of issues that may be addressed is broad and additional resources will be found when needed.
The office plays a major role in the application process for postdoctoral positions, in arrangements for special funding of student projects, and in working with the Johns Hopkins Medical Student Senate and other medical student groups. Notices containing new or more current information on a variety of topics are posted on this website and/or sent to each student at frequent intervals.
Hours and Location
Armstrong Medical Education Building, Suite 230
Walk-In hours are available on a weekly basis for all the deans. Please review OMSA Office Hours to review walk-in hour times.
Formal appointments are not made for walk-in hours. For your convenience, a sign-up sheet is available in the office and you will be seen in the order that your name is on the list. The walk-in hours are for students who may have a question that can be answered in an amount of time that will allow other students the opportunity to also take advantage of these hours. Please feel free to stop by or call the main office at 410-955-3416 to schedule an appointment if you have a lengthy issue to discuss. You may also email [email protected].
