Kelly Gebo

Vice Provost for Education

Kelly A. Gebo, MD MPH was appointed as the first Johns Hopkins University vice provost for education in December 2014.  Dr. Gebo has a long Hopkins affiliation, beginning as an undergraduate, through medical, MPH, residency, and fellowship training, culminating with her appointment as professor of medicine in 2012. She served as a provost fellow from 2011 through 2013 and as an American Council on Education fellow at the University of Pennsylvania provost’s office from 2013 to 2014.

Dr. Gebo has been involved with a spectrum of teaching across the university, including undergraduate, medical, and public health students through residents and post-doctoral fellows. As director of undergraduate public health studies program beginning in 2005, she led the program’s expansion to be one of the largest majors on the Homewood campus.  Dr. Gebo and her team also developed an honors track, fostered research opportunities, developed electives in South Africa and Uganda, and instituted a synthesizing experience required of all students in the major, the Applied Experience. For her leadership and innovations with this program, she was awarded the inaugural Riegelman Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Public Health Education by the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health.

She is also nationally known for her research in clinical outcomes of HIV, particularly in older populations and health care utilization and disparities in access to HIV care. She has over 125 publications and delivers presentations nationally and internationally on her research.  She is the co-principal investigator on the HIV Research Network, a consortium of HIV care sites that care for over 20,000 HIV infected individuals nationally and is the co-chair of the Quality of Care working group of the NA-ACCORD. She has served as the principal investigator of public and private grants to support her research and is a fellow of both the Infectious Diseases Society of America and the American College of Physicians

In her role as vice provost, Dr. Gebo oversees academic compliance, accreditation, educational programs, policies, and innovative educational initiatives at Johns Hopkins.  She works closely with the provost, deans, and other constituents across the university to improve education, with a current focus on gateway science courses, PhD education, and interdisciplinary studies between departments and schools.
