Office of Medical Education


Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, a state-of-the-art free standing 259 bed quaternary care children’s hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, integrated with Johns Hopkins Medicine in 2011. The hospital’s vision and our office’s mission is to train the next generation of leaders in pediatric clinical care, research and education.

As an educationally driven program, our residents will have enhanced opportunities to cultivate their individual career interests and have intensive mentoring from physician leaders throughout their training. Trainees will benefit from our program’s framework that has incorporated innovative topics and experiences that build on the expertise of Johns Hopkins Medicine (leadership training, continuous quality improvement and safety, ethics of care, cultural competence and business of medicine) in addition to the core training experiences of a traditional pediatric residency.

Our curriculum and training design will put our trainees on an optimal path to achieve the traditional competencies, new proposed milestones, and reach their individual career goals in an era of significant change in graduate medical education. Use of state-of-the art facilities and an emphasis on “hi-tech” “hi-touch” teaching modalities including multiple simulation centers at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital will additionally provide residents with high yield learning opportunities.

Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is situated in the Tampa Bay region along Florida’s Gulf Coast, an area with abundant natural beauty, fine arts, sports and cultural amenities.
