I am pleased to announce that U.S. News & World Report has ranked our Department of Internal Medicine #1 in the nation on its 2019-20 Best Medical Schools survey. This recognition, though specific, is truly a department-wide honor not earned by any singular person or group, but by all faculty, staff, nurses and trainees in the Department of Medicine. Congratulations and thank you for the exceptional training and teaching you exhibit to turn out such a highly-recognized and well-deserving training program. Thanks to you, we are able to contribute to the bright futures of young physicians and physician-scientists and to uphold the tradition of excellence people have come to expect from Hopkins.
To add to this recognition, the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine was ranked #2 in the nation on the 2019–20 list of the best research-oriented medical schools. As the largest research department in the School of Medicine, I don’t think it’s biased to say our scientists have a lot to do with this recognition.
