Primary Care Services
Hopkins GIM offers outpatient care in two settings:
Several new physicians have opened practices at Green Spring Station and can accept new patient appointments. Also based downtown is the Executive and Preventive Health Program, which provides comprehensive health assessments for people with busy schedules.
Hopkins GIM internists fill three key roles at Johns Hopkins Hospital. First, internists in the Faculy Firms serve as attending physicians and teach residents and students. Second, they staff the Inpatient Medical Consultation Service to help other hospital departments manage medical problems. Third, the GIM Hospitalist Program provides state-of-the-art, comprehensive, evidence-based clinical care to hospitalized patients.
Hopkins GIM faculty and fellows also work in collaboration with colleagues from around the campus. In the Moore Clinic they work in multi-disciplinary teams to treat patients with HIV/AIDS. And in the University Health Service, they provide acute and ongoing care to Hopkins students, residents, trainees and their dependents.
