General Preventive Medicine Residency

Year Two

The second year of the Johns Hopkins General Preventive Medicine Residency program provides residents with a variety of preventive medicine skills through 12 months of practical preventive medicine rotations that last 2-3 months each. 

Residents choose from approximately 20 established rotation sites and may work with the Program Director and Program Manager to set up new elective rotations.  Residents complete a minimum of one rotation in each of the following areas:

The following are examples of current rotation sites:

BIOSTATISTICS/EPIDEMIOLOGY

MANAGEMENT AND ADMINSTRATION/MEDICAL MANAGEMENT

CLINICAL PREVENTIVE MEDICINE

ENVIRONMENTAL/OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE

Throughout the year, residents attend monthly administrative rounds on site at Johns Hopkins which enhance their understanding of preventive medicine through journal club, group discussions, and lectures. Topics include occupational medicine, injury control, health promotion, infectious diseases, health systems, global health, community health and professional development. Residents also have the opportunity to present rotation work and share experiences with co-residents and program faculty.

Second-year residents continue longitudinal clinical work with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians practices.  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. 

In addition, second-year residents continue longitudinal clinical work with Johns Hopkins Community Physicians practices.
