Anatomy

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

The F.A.E. Graduate Program provides individualized attention for each student. All students are required to engage in independent research, and a laboratory research rotation under faculty guidance begins soon after their arrival. Research may involve our large collection of fossil vertebrates, our broad array of casts of recent and fossil mammal dentitions, or various samples of human historic and archaeological material. Research is further facilitated by access to the extensive collections of recent and fossil vertebrates at the National Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian Institution), Washington, D.C., which is only an hour away. The F.A.E. program also offers opportunities for field work, including research on the ecology of living primates and other mammals in Costa Rica and on Eocene vertebrate faunas in Wyoming.

Students are required to take courses in human anatomy and embryology, organ histology, evolutionary biology, biomechanics, mammalian and primate evolution, and statistics, while other course work is arranged to suit the requirements and interests of the individual. In addition, a comprehensive oral examination by the end of the second year. After completing the human anatomy course, each student also gains valuable experience as a teaching assistant for medical and undergraduate human anatomy courses.
As a result of the interdisciplinary training of the F.A.E. Graduate Program, our graduates are well equipped to face the challenge of today's academic job market. See the links below for further information about the program.

Applied Health Sciences Informatics

Doctoral Master's Full-time In-person Online
  • School of Medicine

The Division of Health Sciences Informatics at the School of Medicine seeks to advance the development and use of information technology for decision-making, research, health care delivery, and individual academic growth, and to increase the awareness of these resources among the Johns Hopkins health sciences community.

The division offers a 24-month, campus-based master's program focused on an independent research project resulting in a thesis, and a doctoral program that offers the opportunity to participate in groundbreaking research projects in clinical informatics. The master's program is also available online.

Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

This program offers graduate training in virtually all aspects of the biological sciences. Our students choose their thesis advisors from among 99 faculty members in seven departments: Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Neuroscience, Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences, and Physiology.

The BCMB program serves as an umbrella program that builds close ties among all seven participating departments, fostering a collaborative environment that encourages interdisciplinary research, and this interdisciplinary structure expands the opportunities for graduate training.

Biological Chemistry

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

The graduate program in Biological Chemistry at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine offers training in cutting-edge biomedical research for outstanding students. The BC faculty offers a wide variety of research topics, that range from detailed studies of the structure and function of single molecules to complex biological processes studied in vivo. Faculty research interests include the molecular mechanisms underlying the sensation of light, heat and pain, the cellular and molecular basis of embryonic development, wound healing, cell differentiation, motility, and adhesion, DNA replication, RNA processing, protein structure and folding, the structure and function of carbohydrate modifications, water channels, ion channels, and diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and cancer.

Biomedical Engineering

Doctoral Major Master's Full-time In-person
  • Whiting School of Engineering
  • School of Medicine

Biomedical engineering applies modern approaches from the experimental life sciences in conjunction with theoretical and computational methods from engineering, mathematics, and computer science to the solution of biomedical problems of fundamental importance, such as human health.

Ranked as the nation’s top graduate program by U.S. News & World Report, biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins offerss students the opportunity to train in the School of Medicine and School of Engineering, and perform research with faculty who are world leaders in their respective fields, including neuroengineering, medical imaging, computational medicine, and cell and tissue engineering.

Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine
  • Krieger School of Arts and Sciences

New fields of scientific inquiry are emerging at a breathtaking pace. Biophysics, with its inherent foundation of integrative science, addresses the mysteries of life using all of the methods available to us through biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, engineering, and computer science. The Program in Molecular Biophysics, established in 1990, provides students with training in both the fundamental principles of biophysics and contemporary advances in the field.

Cellular and Molecular Medicine

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

The Graduate Training Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine prepares scientists for laboratory research at the cellular and molecular level with a direct impact on the understanding, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human diseases. The Ph.D. graduates of the Program will have a rigorous training in scientific research and a thorough knowledge of human biology and human diseases.

Cellular and Molecular Physiology

Doctoral Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

This program is designed to train the next generation of scientists who will work at the frontier of integrating molecular and cellular mechanisms to understand both normal and disease physiology. Physiology is an integrative science, bringing together diverse disciplines in an effort to understand the functioning of living organisms. It seeks to identify the mechanisms by which an organism maintains the processes we regard as characteristic of life.

Clinical Informatics

Certificate Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

This remote program prepares clinicians, health specialists, programmers, and software engineers with the health IT skills necessary to support or lead the development of a strategic direction for health information within a clinical enterprise.

Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation

Doctoral Master's Full-time Hybrid In-person
  • School of Medicine
  • Bloomberg School of Public Health

A joint venture between the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation trains clinicians to be more effective clinical scientists.  Participants gain the skills necessary to design and conduct clinical investigations of emerging medical treatments and technologies, and to apply new diagnostic techniques and approaches to the study of human pathophysiology.

We work mostly with faculty, postdoctoral fellows and other allied health professionals working with human subjects in clinical investigation. Our graduates pursue careers in academia, and as independent clinical investigators at pharmaceutical firms and federal regulatory agencies.

Health Sciences Informatics

Master's Full-time In-person
  • School of Medicine

High quality research and training are central to the mission of Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and to the Division of Health Sciences Informatics Through research and practice in health sciences informatics, it is our goal to contribute significantly to the body of knowledge and expertise available to public health and healthcare practitioners, and researchers in this rapidly growing field. Our programs, built on a core set of principles, provide students the knowledge and skills to lead in this world-wide effort. Students learn in an environment enriched by Johns Hopkins' world-renowned experience in research, clinical care and public health, as well as the wide array of professional, government, global and private-sector resources in our mid-Atlantic region.
