Miller, 49, will become the first female president in Johns Hopkins' history when she takes the reins on July 1, according to a release. She replaces Ronald Peterson, who had been at the helm for 19 years.
Miller says her primary focus will be to deliver high-quality care for patients and to ensure they have a good experience.
She previously was senior vice president of medical affairs at the Johns Hopkins Health System. She also held the post of VP of medical affairs for Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she was a medical student and served her internship and residency.
Miller has held various positions within the organization, including associate program director of Osler Medical Residency Training Program, assistant dean for student affairs at the school of medicine and vice chair of clinical operations for the department of medicine.
Peterson announced in January that he would step down as president. He will continue serving as president of the health system and executive VP of Johns Hopkins Medicine.
