The Office of Medical Education provides institutional oversight and support for all medical education programs at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. We foster an environment of innovation, collaboration and scholarship in medical education and ensure that programs and the institution remain in compliance with requirements from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and other accrediting organizations.
Graduate medical education was at the heart of the integration between Johns Hopkins Medicine and All Children's Hospital from the very beginning. Joining forces with All Children’s Hospital in 2011 brought the rich Johns Hopkins legacy to a new canvas. As a freestanding children’s hospital, Johns Hopkins All Children’s builds on the Johns Hopkins tradition with training designed to modernize graduate medical education and produce the next generation of leaders in pediatric clinical care, research, education and advocacy.
The residency and fellowship programs in Florida hold their own accreditation and program faculty are based on the St. Petersburg campus. However, all programs have access to the resources within the Johns Hopkins system and collaboration occurs across campuses, including opportunities for clinical rotations in Baltimore to support individualized learning plans for residents and fellows.
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital started in 1926 in St. Petersburg as a community effort to combat polio. Today, it is a 259-bed teaching hospital and regional referral center. It is the only one of three Johns Hopkins academic medical centers outside of the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. region.
We invite you to explore our unique educational programs for medical students, residents and fellows. Read more from Jennifer Maniscalco, M.D., M.P.H., Designated Institutional Official, and George Jallo, M.D.,

Why Train Here?
We Are Educationally Focused
We do not rely on resident and fellow service to run the hospital’s clinical enterprise, so we create opportunities for trainees to focus on their education in smaller, collaborative environments. We emphasize not only clinical skills, but also leadership, scholarship, patient safety and quality improvement opportunities.
We Offer Individualized Professional Development
We build curricular innovations into the programs to support learner-centered training and enhance career and professional development for residents and fellows.
We Have the Flexibility to Innovate
Our programs are dynamic, adapting to learners’ needs and emerging forces in health care. We cultivate an environment where residents and fellows can play a key role in influencing the future of medical training.
Center for Medical Simulation and Innovative Education
Graduate medical education trainees at Johns Hopkins All Children’s benefit from hands-on experience in our Center for Medical Simulation and Innovative Education, which opened in 2018 in our Research and Education Building. The Simulation Center offers a broad spectrum of pediatric and neonatal medicine simulation experiences, using the highest quality simulators on the market to recreate realistic clinical situations in real time. Emphasizing a multidisciplinary approach to education and patient care, simulation training provides the opportunity for learners to hone skills and participate as a team member or leader in the most critical situations.

Research and Quality Improvement
Our educational programs offer robust opportunities in research and health systems science, both locally at Johns Hopkins All Children’s and through collaboration with our Johns Hopkins Medicine colleagues in Baltimore.
The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Institute for Clinical and Translational Research supports the Center for Training, Education, Engagement and Mentorship (TEEM), an education and training resource that provides didactic and experiential opportunities in research for trainees. These include the Clinical and Translational Research Training (CTRT) Track, the Seminar Series in Academia, and the forthcoming Trainee Mentorship Committee, designed to meet the mentorship needs of junior investigators in clinical and translational research.
The CTRT Track is focused on developing and mentoring passionate residents, fellows and junior faculty on a pathway toward independent, successful investigation in clinical and translational research in child health and disease. During this experience, CTRT trainees will gain hands-on experience in the design, implementation, presentation and publication of a clinical or translational research study.
The Health System Science-Quality Improvement Scholar Program within the pediatric residency curriculum is focused on preparing residents to be stewards of patient safety and the delivery of high value care. This longitudinal curriculum focuses on competencies needed to lead patient safety and quality improvement interventions within health care organizations and includes a combination of didactic and experiential educational activities and execution of a mentored project. Residents and fellows may also participate in the Advanced Patient Safety and Quality Improvement elective, a four-week interdisciplinary experience where trainees take an active role in safety and quality activities within the organization.
