The second year of the program provides residents with a variety of preventive medicine skills through practical preventive medicine rotations that last two to three months each.
Residents choose from approximately 20 established rotation sites and may work with the program director and administrator to set up elective rotations. Residents complete a minimum of one rotation in each of the following areas:
- Management and Administration/Medical Management
- and either Clinical Preventive Medicine or Occupational Medicine/Environmental Health
Residents also attend monthly administrative rounds on site at Johns Hopkins which will enhance their understanding of preventive medicine though participation in a journal club, group discussions, modules and lectures.
Residents will continue with their weekly clinical work and are expected to work on a project within the practice location in an area such as practice improvement, patient management systems, improved delivery of patient care or improvements in patient management of chronic diseases.
Second-year residents will also complete a year-long preventive medicine course.
In order to provide meaningful clinical activities, the program has arranged with the Johns Hopkins Community Physicians for residents to be involved in clinic activities with a focus on the provision of preventive services, lifestyle behavior change and health coaching to patients seen at various JHCP clinics.
Residents will rotate to an assigned to a “patient centered home” clinical location one half day per week and will participate directly in the provision of preventive services to patients. Residents will also learn about the practice of preventive medicine within a medical-home, and will work with health-care teams to analyze and synthesize clinical and population-based approaches to disease prevention and health promotion of the home practice’s patients. Residents will be matched to practices based on the needs of the site and the resident’s interests and background.
Over the course of the year, residents will also work with the home practice team on a project which involves safety, quality improvement, population management, operations, or other program related to our program goals. Residents will be expected to create an abstract, poster, or written report on the project by the end of the two-year clinical rotation.
