General Preventive Medicine Residency

Year One

The first year of the Johns Hopkins General Preventive Medicine Residency program begins in July and is a combination of Master of Public Health program coursework, residency modules and clinical work with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians primary care practices.

The summer term is enriched by a two-month orientation to the specialty of preventive medicine that includes seminars and faculty  meetings to explore career opportunities in preventive medicine and public health.

Throughout first year, residents engage in our GPMR curriculum and activities, which includes modules on preparedness, quality improvement, problem solving in public health, lifestyle medicine, advocacy, leadership and management ane environmental health.  First-year residents also participate in teaching graduate and undergraduate introductory public health courses.  This educational program is enhanced by longitudinal clinical work with Johns Hopkins Community Physician practices, and participation in journal club, book club, and Preventive Medicine Grand Rounds. 

For residents who have previously obtained an MPH degree, the first year affords the opportunity to do additional public health rotations, under supervision of our Assistant Program Director.  You also may take MPH courses to supplement previously obtained public health skills or knowledge.

All residents are expected to conduct preventive medicine research during the academic and/or practicum year of the residency; publication and presentation of research results are encouraged.
