The Johns Hopkins Heart and Vascular Institute is in search of a dynamic board-certified cardiothoracic surgeon to join the Division of Adult Cardiac Surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD.  The Johns Hopkins Hospital was founded in 1889 and is the teaching hospital for The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. The Johns Hopkins Hospital was ranked No. 4 in the United States and No. 1 in the state of Maryland according to the U.S. News and World Report’s best hospital rankings.

Cardiac surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital has a distinguished history of advancements in the treatment of cardiothoracic diseases in adults and children beginning with the Blalock-Taussig shunt in 1944. Our program provides a full complement of cardiothoracic surgical interventions. We also offer comprehensive treatment for heart and pulmonary failure, including ECMO, cardiac transplantation, lung transplantation, and mechanical circulatory support devices.

The ideal candidate will have broad experience in adult cardiac surgery with recognized expertise and a track record of exemplary clinical results in the field of cardiac surgery.  Our preferred candidate will have expertise in coronary artery bypass surgery and have the skillset needed to develop a robust elective practice within the greater Baltimore region. 

Faculty will have the privilege and responsibility of helping to teach cardiac surgery trainees and medical students, and will expand their research and scholarly activities to achieve national and international recognition as they advance the field.  Faculty within the Division of Cardiac Surgery have access to a robust research infrastructure related to bench and large animal research, clinical trial and data analytics to allow the development of their academic and research portfolio.  

This appointee will hold a faculty appointment in the Division of Cardiac Surgery encompassed within the JHU Department of Surgery and will report to the Academic Division Chief, Surgical Lead and Co-Director of the Heart and Vascular Institute, and to the other senior leaders of both The Johns Hopkins University and The Johns Hopkins Hospital.


MD, DO, or equivalent degree from an accredited school of medicine is required. Additionally, candidates must be fellowship trained, board certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, and eligible for licensure in Maryland.
