American University in Beirut (AUB)
Since the 1960''s, Hopkins has had long standing relationship with AUB, focused on Medical Education and Physician Training. This has led to the exchange of hundreds of physicians between the institutions and in fact, Hopkins employs a significant number of physicians who trained at AUB. The Civil War in Lebanon in the 1980''s/late 1990''s challenged the relationship. In 2004, programmatic collaborations between AUB and Johns Hopkins have occurred in the areas of Medicine, Pediatrics and Pharmacology.
Today, faculty from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine regularly visit the AUB medical school to teach courses and lecture to medical students. Additionally, there is a faculty exchange between the two academic medical schools along with collaborative initiatives between investigators at the AUB and Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Additionally, Johns Hopkins faculties provide assistance and advice to help facilitate AUB as a regional center for education, research, and clinical training.
