Welcome to the Division of General Internal Medicine (GIM) at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Our mission is international leadership in patient care, education, and patient-oriented research.
We pride ourselves on teamwork, diversity, mentorship, transparency, creativity, and commitment.
Hopkins GIM is home to 80 full-time faculty, 150 part-time and 30 joint faculty, 17 federally-funded post-doctoral fellows, and 200 research staff. GIM faculty hold leadership posts in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and the Osler Housestaff Program; they lecture across the US and around the world; and they direct a research enterprise with over $36 million per year (direct costs) in NIH and other federal grants.
We have clinical expertise in internal medicine (including primary care and consultative medicine), hospital medicine (including inpatient and preoperative consultation), executive health, and preventive medicine. We have research expertise in clinical epidemiology, pharmacoepidemiology, prevention trials, population health, health services and outcomes research, and evidence-based medicine. Specific areas of research interest include hypertension and cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, mental health, HIV-AIDS, type 2 diabetes, obesity, racial disparities in health and healthcare, substance abuse, medical ethics, medical education, and physician-patient communication.
