When surgeon-in-chief William Halsted tapped Samuel Crowe to head Johns Hopkins Otolaryngology, he could not have predicted how much the specialty would change over the next 100 years. Come celebrate a century of milestones at the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery’s Centennial Celebration from June 20 – 21, 2014.
The festivities kick off at 7 a.m. on Friday with a welcome from Paul Rothman, dean of the medical faculty and chief executive officer of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Highlights of the day include a movie about Halsted and his visionary leadership; the new video highlighting departmental milestones; lectures about Samuel Crowe’s appointment as the first director; a panel discussion by department alumni; comments from former directors, Drs. Johns, Cummings, Minor and Eisele; the Charles W. Cummings, M.D., endowed lecture featuring Mark Richardson, dean of the School of Medicine at Oregon Health and Science University; and a resident research symposium. Friday evening, the department will host a gala with a seated dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore.
The celebration continues on Saturday with a family picnic on the lawn of Evergreen House at The Johns Hopkins University and a resident and fellow graduation celebration and dinner at Baltimore’s Frederick Douglass Museum.
