    With respect to time away from training, please note that the ABIM has specific requirements regarding the length of training necessary to sit for the Boards. No more than three months in the 36 months can be used for vacation, illness or parental leave. To address this requirement, while also understanding that residents may require leave during training (e.g. parental leave), we have designed an elective rotation that—with appropriate planning and prior approval by the program directorwould allow a resident to participate in a program of self-directed learning that will be considered part of the 36 months of full-time medical residency education required by the ABIM. In this way, a resident could receive credit for a self-study elective (for example, while on parental leave) even though the resident cannot participate in hospital-related activities. If this elective is successfully completed, the resident would not have to extend training beyond the usual 36 consecutive month period.
  • Meal benefits include breakfast (fresh fruit, juice and coffee) and lunch at weekday conferences, and meal passes when on-call.
  • Confidential counseling and psychological support services including a weekly support group.


Graduate medical education is considered a full-time professional experience. Other compensated activities are not permitted, unless approved by the department chairman or program director.

Professional Liability Insurance

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center is an insured institutional participant in a program sponsored by several teaching hospitals and medical schools to underwrite medical malpractice and general liability insurance for themselves and the doctors closely affiliated with their institutions. The actual insurance policy has been issued by the Lexington Insurance Company. Insurance policies are written on a "claims made" basis, which means they cover claims or adverse incidents actually reported during the current policy year resulting from services rendered after inception of individual coverage under this program. The scope of the physician's malpractice coverage closely parallels that customarily included in medical professional policies with the following exception: the limit of liability under Lexington is $3 million per claim and $145 million annual aggregate for all covered individuals and institutions.
