University Physiology Department



Department of Physiology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine


The department approached the Wilbanks Consulting Group looking for an updated site for their department and graduate program. Their current site had very little content, was very outdated in appearance, and difficult to manage. The clients had a style in mind for the site but wanted to make sure that the graduate program was clearly a part of the larger department and not a separate entity. As the WCG worked with the department to develop custom content to fill out the site (the old site had very little existing content to move), I worked to design and develop the new site to meet their needs.

I created a site with two “homepages” – one for the department and one of the graduate program. Each homepage is widgetized and features unique “fast facts” widget areas at the bottom highlighting important information that is easily updatable by the client as necessary. Other widget areas feature program news, testimonials from past and current students, and a section for featured physiologists – which randomly displays an individual’s name and photo from the department profile pages. The department also wanted to incorporate interactive images into the site so we created two – one of the department chairs (shown in photo below)

Additional features include:

  • mobile friendly
  • full-width homepage slider
  • integrated Google event calendar
  • custom department page featuring clickable image for each people group
  • integrated WordPress tutorial videos on admin dashboard

Date Completed
