Johns Hopkins residents from 1897

JHH Class of 1897

  • Physician-in-Chief William Osler’s (1849–1919) greatest contribution to American medicine was establishing the medical residency program at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
  • Under Osler's direction, young physicians-in-training lived in the hospital—hence the universal term residents, ensuring their constant attention to patients. (They were initially known as house medical officers.) The residents slept in rooms in the dome of the Billings Administration Building.
  •  Going through the Osler Service of medical residency is recognized as one of the finest training programs in the country. Every Friday, the residents honor his legacy by donning the Osler scarf or tie.
  •  From the school of medicine’s first graduating class of 15 in 1897, 11 men and one woman became interns, or trainees in their first year of residency.

From Neil Grauer, historian and author of Leading the Way: A History of Johns Hopkins Medicine
