Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Celebrates 125 Years
Fri, 19 Jan 2018
This year marks the 125th anniversary of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The school opened its doors in 1893 with 16 students in spite of “extremely lofty and severe requirements for admission,” according to the school of medicine’s first dean, William H. Welch. Throughout the years, the school of medicine has trained and educated thousands. These students have gone on to set the standard for education, patient care and research in the United States and beyond.
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is the place where modern medical education was born – with a high threshold for admissions, a curriculum grounded in the scientific method, and the linking of the school and the hospital. Throughout its history, it has remained true to its founding ideals while constantly adapting and moving medicine forward. Its medical and graduate programs are ranked among the top in the nation and its faculty members are some of the world’s foremost experts in their fields.
Johns Hopkins Solutions is proud to make available to industry some of the programs, protocols and other innovations stemmed from the great minds at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
