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 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.
