The first year of the Johns Hopkins General Preventive Medicine Residency program begins in July—and is a combined residency and Master of Public Health (MPH) year.
The summer term is enriched by a two-month orientation to the specialty of preventive medicine that includes seminars and field trips to explore career opportunities and institutions related to preventive medicine and public health.
Throughout the year, twice-weekly preventive medicine seminars, monthly journal club, and quarterly grand rounds enhance the educational program.
First year residents participate in teaching an undergraduate introductory public health class as well as conducting a special management assessment project. Residents are expected to participate in preventive medicine research during the academic and/or practicum year of the residency; publication and presentation of research results are encouraged.
Effective July 1, 2011, the training requirements were changed by the ACGME to include the addition of a total of two months of relevant clinical work in each year of the two year program.
