The Center’s Training Core includes training and mentorship opportunities for trainees with interest in this area.

Featured Trainee

Karly Murphy, MD, MSc, MHS

Karly Murphy I grew up just outside of St. Paul, Minnesota and went to Kenyon College. After college, I studied in Galway, Ireland for a year on a Mitchell Scholarship. Then after attending Harvard Medical School, I completed my residency at Johns Hopkins Internal Medicine/Urban Health track. I am a Clinical Research Fellow in the Division of General Internal Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. I am a board-certified general internist with clinical training in the care of vulnerable populations through my Urban Health internal medicine residency. My research interests focus on improving how vulnerable populations navigate the health care system and manage chronic diseases. I am interested in how behavioral health homes function as a model of integrated care for people with serious mental illness and innovative strategies to deliver primary care to this population. With the ALACRITY center, I have been investigating cancer screening rates in people with serious mental illness. I have also been involved in the ALACRITY project “Using an Innovative Quality Improvement Process to Increase Coordination and Delivery of Evidence-Based Cardiovascular Risk Factor Care in Community Mental Health Organizations” to develop a cardiovascular risk factor management evidence practice bundle that will be implemented via a Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) strategy in health homes. In my free time, I like to hike, travel, cook, and hang out with my nearly three year-old daughter.
