Hopkins medical school head to retire in 2012

Dr. Edward D. Miller

Dr. Edward D. Miller, Dean/CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, has announced he will retire on June 30, 2012.

The first notice of his retirement came in an email sent to Hopkins staff and faculty on May 4, by Johns Hopkins University President Ronald J. Daniels. He praised Miller, who has been in the job since 1997, for his work with the curriculum and expansion of the school’s hospital and said his departure would be the “end of an era” for the school.

“Ed [Miller] has represented Johns Hopkins and academic medicine brilliantly in the national debate over the future of health care,” Daniels said in the email. “He has been a forthright and ardent advocate for a system that makes sense for patients. He has expanded our engagement with the Baltimore community.”

Daniels said the search for Miller’s successor was underway.

Miller, 68, is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. The Rochester, N.Y., native received his M.D. the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. He was a surgical intern at University Hospital in Boston, chief resident in anesthesiology at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston, and a research fellow in physiology at Harvard Medical School.
