Moving Us Closer To Osler
A Miller Coulson Academy of Clinical Excellence Initiative

Dean Chien

Hopkins is full of stories. Previously, it was my job to document some of them. In our CLOSLER Look video series, I had the privilege of interviewing some of the best doctors at one of the best hospitals in the world. But, after realizing I would never be a filmmaker, I shifted from producing to polishing content as part of the Editorial Team. Hey, if you can’t beat the critics, you might as well join them.

Qualifications? I now write for a living, if you count my HPI’s and A&P’s as a medical scribe as writing. I studied Medicine, Science, & The Humanities as an undergrad at Johns Hopkins University. I’m still waiting for it to pay the bills. I have a functioning Zoom camera and mic.

I’m from Santa Monica, California, but decided all four seasons would constitute experiential learning. I walk, read, and eat too quickly.
