Daniel Brotman, professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine, fulfills both the spirit and intent of the John A. Flynn Professorship. In fact, his career bears remarkable similarity to Dr. Flynn’s, reflecting in the inpatient setting that which Dr. Flynn achieved in the outpatient setting. Dr. Brotman became the director of the Johns Hopkins Hospitalist Program within the Division of General Internal Medicine in 2005. Since that time, he has successfully created a Hospitalist program that not only attracts faculty to work, but has inspired multiple clinical programs within it, ultimately creating a more cutting edge clinical experience. Dr. Brotman has overseen and lectured in a premiere review and update course for practicing physicians in the region. He has also worked on several projects related to patient and family education using technology to improve patient-provider communication and education. Dr Brotman is a successful scholar, publishing over 100 peer-reviewed papers. In 2015, he was awarded the Excellence in Research Award from the Society of Hospital Medicine. Similar to the chair’s namesake, Dr. Brotman has mentored numerous faculty and under his leadership, the hospitalists have become a well-respected group of inpatient specialists who have key teaching roles. Dr. Brotman has also been an active medical educator.
Outside of Hopkins, he has held prominent roles in the Society of Hospital Medicine and was recognized as a Master in Hospital Medicine in 2018.
Dr. Brotman truly embodies every aspect of this chair’s criteria. It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we hope you will join us in celebrating the rededication of the John A. Flynn Professorship in Medicine on Friday March 13, 2020, 4 p.m. at the Welch Medical Library.
