General Preventive Medicine Residency

Overview of Residency Training

The Johns Hopkins General Preventive Medicine Residency program is a two year training program for physicians.

Completion of the program leads to eligibility for certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.


To be eligible to apply for the residency, physicians must complete at least one year of ACGME-approved clinical training prior to entering the residency. We have one (Transitional year PGY-1) training slot offered jointly with Bassett Healthcare in Cooperstown, New York.

Residents may apply to the program having previously obtained an MPH degree. In this instance, the first-year will be customized to suit your training needs.

We also have a combined family medicine-preventive medicine program with MedStar Franklin Square Hospital.

Throughout the residency training, residents work with the Program Director, Clinical Director, and Academic Directors to customize their training areas of interest, such as epidemiology, health policy and management, global health, program management and evaluation, and maternal and child health. Residents are guided toward courses and rotations designed to facilitate the development of resident expertise in these key areas of public health.
