PIHPS: The Professionals In Health Podcast Series


Jan 17, 2020

Dr. Chisolm attended the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) for her undergraduate degree, where she studied Visual Arts, with a concentration in Film. She studied medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and completed residency training in general psychiatry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM).

Board-certified in both general psychiatry and addiction medicine, Dr. Chisolm has over 3 decades of clinical experience in these fields. In addition, she has served as PI or co-investigator on multiple nationally funded research projects, and has published over 80 scientific, clinical, and medical education papers on psychiatric disorders and humanistic medical practice, as well as articles (and one book) on the use of social media in medicine, several book chapters, and a psychiatric textbook.

Dr. Chisolm is currently the Vice Chair for Education for the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at JHUSOM. Last year, she completed a fellowship in art museum-based health professions education at the Harvard Macy Institute, and is currently piloting an elective at the Baltimore Museum of Art for fourth year medical students at Johns Hopkins focused on the ‘big questions’: what it means to be human, to be a physician, and to lead a good life (for doctors and patients). Dr. Chisolm has also developed an app (Bedside Education in the Art of Medicine [BEAM]), which allows busy clinical teachers to use paintings and poems to reflect on the human experience of illness with their patients and learners in the hospital.
