We are very thankful for Dr. Jonathan Orens who served as our inaugural Vice Chair for Clinical Business Development beginning in 2018. During his time in the role, he worked with divisional, departmental and institutional leadership to oversee and coordinate efforts to deliberately and selectively grow DOM clinical operations outside of JHH and JHBMC, focusing on the National Capitol Region. His expertise in clinical program development served him well as he met with a broad range of Johns Hopkins Health System and School of Medicine leaders to compile a profile of opportunity for our department and spark new initiatives. Dr. Orens shifted roles in October to focus on leading one of our largest divisions as interim director of the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
The Assistant Vice Chair for Women’s Careers in Academic Medicine will set the tone for DOM initiatives related to the advancement of women faculty and trainees. This position will support and often lead our strategic efforts related to actively promoting DOM women in partnership with the School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University and the Johns Hopkins Health System.
Dr. Garima Sharma will step down from her role as Associate Vice Chair and Chair of the Task Force on Women’s Careers in Academic Medicine at the end of March. We are grateful for her leadership over the past two years, including her efforts to rebuild and expand the task force after the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic and to improve the visibility of women faculty from diverse training backgrounds, experiences and career goals. Dr. Sharma and the Women’s Task Force held several key initiatives within the DOM including sessions on academic promotion and collaborated with the DOM Diversity Council and the Office of Wellbeing to improve recruitment, retention and career advancement of women faculty and staff. She will be leaving Hopkins to become the systems director for women’s cardiovascular health and cardio obstetrics at Inova Health System.
