With about 480 students, the Johns Hopkins medical school has small class sizes with a faculty-student ratio of approximately 5 to 1. Students can complete a traditional MD degree in four years or a joint MD/PhD degree in eight. There are also dual degree programs for the MD/MPH (Masters of Public Health) and the MD/MBA degree.
The Johns Hopkins medical school is divided into four colleges (Florence Sabin, Vivien Thomas, Daniel Nathans, and Helen Taussig) named after famous Johns Hopkins faculty members. Students are placed in one of the four groups when they begin their medical school education. Advisers are assigned to students in groups of five from each college. These advisers also teach “Clinical Skills,” which is a first-year course mandatory to all incoming students. The advisers remain with their designated students for their entire four-year education. Each of the colleges competes in the College Olympics every year.
The Johns Hopkins medical school curriculum consists of Genes to Society courses which blend academics and clinical experience. After several months, classes stop for “Intersessions,” which are week-long courses on simulation and advanced skills. Many students decide to pursue dermatology, pediatrics, emergency medicine, or anesthesiology.
There are also opportunities for extracurricular activities, with more than 40 student organizations on campus. Plenty of students also choose to get involved in community service projects in the Baltimore area. Applicants looking to study at the prestigious school should investigate the many well-respected programs at the Johns Hopkins medical school.
