Our Mission, Vision and Values

Welcome to the Division of General Internal Medicine (GIM) at Johns Hopkins. Our Mission is to provide the best care to patients and populations, educate and mentor the next generation of physicians and scientists, and improve health and healthcare through innovative research. 

Working collaboratively across Johns Hopkins University, we aspire to transform medicine to achieve the Triple Aim* by implementing effective care strategies proven through innovative and rigorous research into practice and educating health care teams to implement such strategies.

* 1) Improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction); 2) Improving the health of populations; and 3) Reducing the per capita cost of health care.

We fully embrace the JHM Core Values

We espouse the following additional GIM Values

Teamwork
Be collaborative.  High-functioning multidisciplinary teams create the best results for patient care, education and research.
 
Transparency
Be open and honest. Everyone deserves to start from the same place and work with the same information.
 
Balance
Nourish your mind, body and spirit. To be our best and achieve our potential we strive to be healthy and happy; this occurs most easily when we each achieve a state of balance.
 
Service
Give back by paying forward. We commit ourselves to service within the institution, to our professional organizations and to our community.
