Council Application

Councils at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital welcome applications for new members.

Our councils consist of groups of parents and teen patients who meet with hospital staff to help promote patient and family-centered care. The councils provide positive and constructive feedback on the patient experience. Council members also help support sensitivity to the emotional, cultural and spiritual needs of our families and patients.

Members include parents and teen patients (age 13-18) who have experience with a variety of children's health conditions and the inpatient and/or outpatient areas at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital.  

Members serve a two-year term. Sometimes there are additional events (such as a panel discussion during Nurses Week) that council members are invited to attend. We welcome applications throughout the year.

Membership Requirements

Members are expected to attend the monthly meetings, be an advocate for positive change, actively participate and listen to others, and attend a mandatory new member training session.
