(pleasant piano music) >> I’m Rick Bennett, the president of Johns HopkinsBayview Medical Center, where we’re reflectingupon the 125-year history of the Johns HopkinsUniversity’s School of Medicine. Today we’re going totell you about some of the unique things thathave happened on our campus with this long partnership. When the Johns Hopkins Schoolof Medicine opened in 1893, most medical schools aroundthe country.
Were really little more than trade schools.
There were very few qualificationsthat 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 trainedphysicians in the United States.
One of the unique thingsabout 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 knowledgeto 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 knowledgeto improve human health. (pleasant piano music) >> When I arrived here in 1965, it was the Baltimore City Hospital, a sprawling campus with 1700beds.
We had all open wards,30 to 40 people per ward, a male unit and a female unit.
It was a great institutionserving an enormous need, staffed by people who.
Werehere for altruistic reasons. The future of medicine really is gonna be all about team caring. This institution, withits incredible history, is on the leading edge of that, and not only in thisarea but in the country. Our program for all-inclusivecare of the elderly.
Hopkins Elder Plus, is aservice for the patients that otherwise would be in nursing homes, but are able to stay homebecause of team care. That involves every aspect,from drivers of the vehicles that pick patients up to come to daycare, to nurses, to thetherapists, to pharmacists, all working together toprovide the best care possible. (pleasant piano music) >> We have Dr. William Osler to thank for the way we take care ofpatients here at Johns Hopkins. Osler was the first chairmanof the Department of.
Medicine here at the turn of the 20th Century, and William Osler madethe famous observation that it’s much more important to know the person who has an illnessthan to know the illness.
That happens to affect the person. At Johns Hopkins Bayview,we are intent.
On imbuing, in every doctor, studentattending, who’s.
The critical importance ofknowing the patient as a person. At Johns Hopkins Bayview wehave 200 Residents and Fellows on any one day, workingand learning medicine here, and over 100 medicalstudents throughout the year. In order to provide the best care, you have to know someone’sgoals, hopes, aspirations, fears, and impediments to treatment. The Aliki Initiativehelps each person learn how to gather that information. In 2016, we extended the AlikiInitiative to include nurses, and the attending nurse, alongwith the attending physician, worked together.
To getto know the patient well, and to coordinate thecare of the whole team. (pleasant piano music) >> We are incredibly proudof the research that happens at the.
