General Preventive Medicine Residency

Message from the Director

Welcome to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health General Preventive Medicine Residency Program.

I hope that as you view our site you will appreciate the richness of our training program. Our program provides qualified physicians the opportunity to be systematically exposed to the basic tenets of preventive medicine as it is practiced by physicians in this country and around the world.

During the academic phase of the program, residents receive strong didactic training in the core areas of public health, health promotion and disease prevention, and population-based medicine and research. They also gain skills that prepare them to assume leadership roles in the field. During the practicum phase of the residency, residents rotate through a wide variety of settings where preventive medicine is practiced.

Our residents benefit tremendously from the wealth of talent in the School's faculty, in areas such as international health, epidemiology, health policy and management, and population and family health sciences. The program is enhanced by the School's proximity to Washington D.C., and the many federal health agencies and private consulting firms located in the region. As you explore our site, you will gain insight into the breadth and depth of our program. Please feel free to contact us!
