An emphasis on excellence

BME faculty and staff share an emphasis on excellence, cooperation, intellectual curiosity, innovation and teamwork.

The biomedical engineering program at Hopkins is widely acknowledged to be one of the best in the world for one simple reason — the high value that is placed on collegiality. The close-knit community of faculty, students and staff creates a unique environment in which world-class research and education flourish.

This emphasis on cooperation and excellence has led to unusually open, reciprocally helpful relationships between senior faculty, junior faculty and students. The shared passion to create new knowledge and improve human health has resulted in a team mentality that encourages creativity, innovation and long-term collaborations. There is a feeling that nothing is impossible, and a willingness to see the potential in people and ideas.
