Life At Hopkins
A Synergetic Community of Learners
With Baltimore as the backdrop, our students, trainees and researchers thrive in a collaborative environment in the classroom and within the community.
Each new year at Johns Hopkins brings student activities such as college olympics, the celebration of Young Investigators’ Day, the anticipation of Match Day and much more.
As a student, resident, fellow, researcher or other learner at Johns Hopkins, you can take advantage of many resources to help you get around, get help, get something to eat and stay safe.
Here are some useful links for managing your day-to-day life on the School of Medicine East Baltimore campus.

The M.D. program at Johns Hopkins is a four-year degree program. The Genes to Society curriculum provides enhanced opportunities to explore specific areas of interest within the program or even to pursue additional degrees, depending on the student’s goals and aspirations.
M.D./M.B.A. Degree Program
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine/Carey Business School
The curriculum of the M.D./M.B.A. program reflects the requirements and content of two degree programs: the Medical School Genes to Society curriculum and the Johns Hopkins MBA curriculum. Both are innovative new approaches to education in their respective fields.
The typical M.D./M.B.A. candidate is expected to follow the sample schedule, outlined below.
Students applying to the M.D./M.B.A. program will be required to meet the admissions criteria of the JHU School of Medicine and be admitted to the M.D. program. If the students are accepted by the SOM, their application will be forwarded to the MBA Admissions Office for review by the business school. The M.D./M.B.A. Academic Program Committee will approve the final candidates for the dual- degree program. Admitted students will receive admission to the School of Medicine and the Business School for the dual-degree program. Applicants are required to have an MCAT score, however, the GMAT is NOT required.
Combined Degree Programs
The curriculum of the M.D./M.B.A. program reflects the requirements and content of the Medical School Genes to Society curriculum. This dual degree program is designed with two basic pathways; each requires a slightly different process.
Approximately 10 percent of students at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine pursue a combined M.D.-Ph.D. degree , which offers unrivaled preparation for careers in academic medicine, government or private research. This six- to eight-year course of study offers extraordinary flexibility and can be individualized in numerous ways depending on the student’s goals and interests.
The breadth of Johns Hopkins’ basic science endeavors means that students can choose their Ph.D. specialization from almost any area of the biomedical sciences. For the first two years, M.D.-Ph.D. candidates typically follow much the same course of study as their M.D. candidate classmates. After the students complete one or more clinical clerkships, however, they embark on an uninterrupted three- to four-year program of graduate study. They will return to the hospital later to complete required and elective clinical rotations.
M.D./MS HCM Degree (M.S. in Health Care Management)
The MS in Health Care Management degree gives students the knowledge and experience to apply relevant business skills to this dynamic industry. Through action-based learning and analytical approaches, students deepen their knowledge of the key players within the health care ecosystem. Students who wish to pursue this program must first notify their School of Medicine advisor and will be referred to the Carey Business School to complete their application for admission. The option of taking the masters program between second and third years of medical school or between third and fourth year exists.
