Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine

(pleasant piano music)>>I’m Rick Bennett, the president of Johns Hopkins
Bayview Medical Center, where we’re reflecting
upon the 125-year history of the Johns Hopkins
University’s School of Medicine. Today we’re going to
tell you about some of the unique things that
have happened on our campus with this long partnership. When the Johns Hopkins School
of Medicine opened in 1893, most medical schools around
the country were really little more than trade schools. There were very few qualifications
that you needed to get in In fact, it was really harder to get into many of the best colleges. With the opening of Johns Hopkins, there really was a transformation in the way we trained
physicians in the United States. One of the unique things
about Johns Hopkins Bayview is that all of our physicians are faculty of the School of Medicine. We train future leaders in healthcare, and we create new knowledge
to improve human health. In this video, we’re going to relate how we take care of patients, how we educate future healthcare leaders, and how we create new knowledge
to improve human health. (pleasant piano music)>>When I arrived here in 1965, it was the Baltimore City Hospital, a sprawling campus with 1700
beds, mostly serving the poor. We had all open wards,
30 to 40 people per ward, a male unit and a female unit. It was a great institution
serving an enormous need, staffed by people who were
here for altruistic reasons. The future of medicine really is gonna be all about team caring. This institution, with
its incredible history, is on the leading edge of that, and not only in this
area but in the country. Our program for all-inclusive
care of the elderly, Hopkins Elder Plus, is a
service for the patients that otherwise would be in nursing homes, but are able to stay home
because of team care. That involves every aspect,
from drivers of the vehicles that pick patients up to come to daycare, to nurses, to the
therapists, to pharmacists, all working together to
provide the best care possible. (pleasant piano music)>>We have Dr. William Osler to thank for the way we take care of
patients here at Johns Hopkins. Osler was the first chairman
of the Department of Medicine here at the turn of the 20th Century, and William Osler made
the famous observation that it’s much more important to know the person who has an illness
than to know the illness that happens to affect the person. At Johns Hopkins Bayview,
we are intent on imbuing, in every doctor, student
attending, who’s on this campus the critical importance of
knowing the patient as a person. At Johns Hopkins Bayview we
have 200 Residents and Fellows on any one day, working
and learning medicine here, and over 100 medical
students throughout the year. In order to provide the best care, you have to know someone’s
goals, hopes, aspirations, fears, and impediments to treatment. The Aliki Initiative
helps each person learn how to gather that information. In 2016, we extended the Aliki
Initiative to include nurses, and the attending nurse, along
with the attending physician, worked together to get
to know the patient well, and to coordinate the
care of the whole team. (pleasant piano music)>>We are incredibly proud
of the research that happens at the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus. In 2017, researchers were awarded $105 million for research grants, both in the neighborhood
and around the world. A major portion of our
130-acre campus is dedicated to research that actually
advances the science and the promise of medicine. That includes the National
Institutes of Health, Biomedical Research Center, which is dedicated to research on aging. Johns Hopkins Bayview
physicians perform research in a variety of areas, and these include addiction, asthma, allergy, COPD, obesity, stroke and neurological
disorders, burn and wound care, and even lung cancer. Research findings on this campus are changing the way we care for patients. [Richard Bennett] – We’re
proud of our history here on the Johns Hopkins Bayview campus, and our partnering with
the School of Medicine over so many decades. We’re even more excited
about the future before us. Happy 125th Anniversary, to the Johns Hopkins
University School of Medicine.>>Happy Anniversary.>>Happy Anniversary, School of Medicine.>>Happy Anniversary, Johns
Hopkins School of Medicine. (pleasant piano music)

  1. Please, help me
    Hello, my English is not very well, I apologize for that. Also, I do not know where to write you, to ask a couple of questions about treatment.
    My mother has an osteoporosis (probably wrongly written), I want to find out if they are treating you?
    Thank you for your attention, I await your reply.
