Faculty & Resident Catalog


1889 - 2014




Search Tips


The catalog can be searched using two modalities:
  1. The simplest modality is to browse the catalog by academic year as if you were flipping through the pages of a book. Click on the "Browse By Year" link and type a year of interest between 1889 and 2014. The search engine will return all faculty members and residents who were in the Johns Hopkins Hospital Department of Pathology in that particular year, sorted by the order in which the names appeared in the School of Medicine catalog. You can then browse to a previous or following year or type another year and start again. From the yearly list that is retrieved by the search, you can click on individual names to see their history in the department.

  2. The second search modality is to refine your search using the set of 10 criteria, found on the "Search By Criteria" page. These criteria are:

  1. *Faculty Appointment: The School of Medicine of the Johns Hopkins University recognizes 3 types of appointments for faculty members: Primary, Joint, and Emeritus, as detailed in the Gold Book: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/som/faculty/policies/goldbook. {Open Goldbook}

         Primary appointment is in the department that pays the faculty member's salary and provides for space and other resources. Each faculty member can have one and only one primary appointment.

         Joint appointments are assigned when a faculty member participates in the activities of another department or division. Inter-departmental joint appointments are within departments of the School of Medicine and can be with or without title. In joint appointment with title the full range of academic titles may be used; for example, "Professor of Pathology and Associate Professor of Oncology." In joint appointment without title just the term "Joint Appointment" is used; for example, "Professor of Pathology and Joint Appointment in Dermatology." In either case, when the primary appointment terminates, all interdepartmental joint appointments terminate at the same time. Inter-divisional joint appointments are between two divisions of the University; for example, "School of Medicine and School of Art and Sciences." As before, if the primary appointment terminates for any reason, the inter-divisional joint appointments terminate at the same time.

         Emeritus is a status awarded to faculty members upon retirement from the School of Medicine in recognition of distinguished achievement and service. Emeritus faculty can remain active (i.e. in partial retirement) but cannot be promoted.


  2. **Faculty Rank: The School of Medicine of the Johns Hopkins University recognizes 2 types of ranks: regular ranks and special ranks, as detailed in the Gold Book: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/som/faculty/policies/goldbook. {Open Goldbook}

    Regular ranks include 4 levels of increasing prestige and thus salary:
    - Instructor
    - Assistant Professor
    - Associate Professor
    - Professor
    Faculty members in these ranks are typically full-time, but can also be part-time or limited full-time.
    The first pathologists to be featured in the 4 regular ranks are indicated in the chart below.



    Special ranks include 5 categories and a total of 10 ranks:
    - Assistant
    - Research Associate
    - Visiting (Scientist, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor)
    - Adjunct (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor)
    - Lecturer

    "Assistant" refers to junior faculty members right after training (residency or fellowship) who are involved mainly in clinical activities.

    "Research Associate" refers to junior faculty members right after training who are involved mainly in research activities.

    "Visiting" ranks are for outstanding scientists, educators, and/or clinicians who contribute to the scholarly activities of the School of Medicine. They are solely full-time appointments, issued in 12-month terms, renewable but with no commitment for appointment to the permanent faculty.

    "Adjunct" ranks are also for outstanding scientists, educators, and/or clinicians who contribute to the scholarly activities of the School of Medicine, and are also issued on a year-to-year basis. But they are solely part-time appointments. Adjunct faculty members do not receive base salary, are excluded from promotions, and are not eligible for the JHU Benefits Plan. They typically receive compensation or an honorarium for services rendered to the School of Medicine.

    "Lecturer" refers to scholars who are not part of the Johns Hopkins University but come to the University to teach and share their knowledge.

    The first pathologists to be featured in the 10 special ranks are shown in the chart below.
