PhD Program

Students in the biomedical engineering PhD program at Johns Hopkins will push the boundaries of scientific discovery alongside leading clinicians and researchers by developing and applying new technologies to understand, diagnose, and treat disease.

All our students are exceptionally successful, so the message is clear: no matter your background or situation, don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t succeed here or that you shouldn’t apply here. You can and you should.
