Health and Wellness

The health and wellness of students are of utmost importance to us here at Johns Hopkins. If you are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, or other wellbeing-related concerns, please consider contacting the Johns Hopkins Student Assistance Program (JHSAP). If you are concerned about a friend, please encourage that person to seek out counseling. JHSAP can be reached at 443-287-7000. Additional resources are available at the Getting Help page.


Johns Hopkins University values diversity and inclusion. We are committed to providing welcoming, equitable, and accessible educational experiences for all students. Students with disabilities (including those with psychological conditions, medical conditions and temporary disabilities) can request accommodations for your needs by providing an Accommodation Letter issued by Student Disability Services (SDS). Please request accommodations as early as possible to provide time for effective communication and arrangements among all parties, including you, your course instructors, laboratory colleagues, etc.

For further information or to start the process of requesting accommodations, please contact Student Disability Services at the School of Medicine: [email protected]

Pathology Embraces Diversity

Our Pathobiology PhD Program is dedicated to the recruitment, retention, and inclusion of diverse individuals, including underrepresented minorities and persons from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The Department of Pathology as a whole is a community strongly committed to diversity and inclusion. We firmly believe that we can best promote excellence by recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students, faculty and staff and by creating a climate of respect that is supportive of their success.

PhD Program faculty members show their strong support for diversity by serving on the Pathology Diversity Committee. The responsibility for inclusion lies with all of us: leadership, administration, faculty, staff and students.
