The vision of our International Obstetric Anesthesia Division (IOAD) is to provide expert teachers, clinicians and innovators to under-served global communities, delivering updates in obstetric anesthesia care and standardization of medical practices. Through extensive collaboration with our global partners, we hope to provide the highest standards of medical care and education while affording a rich cultural and educational experience for our residents and clinical staff. The core goals of the IOAD mirror that of the Johns Hopkins Hospital strategic plan comprising people, biomedical discovery, patient and family centered care, education, integration and performance.
