Premed post-bac program is
The university is in the process of establishing a
Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program. Housed in the Krieger
School of Arts and Sciences, the program will be highly selective
and is envisioned to quickly become one of the nation's "elite"
centers for preparatory medical studies.
It is expected to commence in the summer or
fall of 2001.
David Trabilsy, the former assistant dean of
the School of Medicine, has been named the program's director and
will report to Steven David, the Krieger School's associate dean
for academic affairs.
A celebration of generosity
With academic pomp befitting the philanthropic
circumstances, the university celebrated the successful
conclusion of the $1.52 billion Johns Hopkins Initiative.
A convocation and dinner held Oct. 14 at
Homewood honored the friends of the university--alumni, parents,
former patients, foundations and corporations among them--who
donated to the most successful fund-raising campaign in the
history of the university and Johns Hopkins Health System. More
than 1,000 of the 130,000 who made gifts during the campaign
attended the Saturday events.
"Because of our support, Johns Hopkins has been
able to make the world a better place," Michael R. Bloomberg,
chairman of the university's board of trustees, said at the
convocation in Shriver Hall.
