Internal Medicine Residency at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

Hear first-hand from seven residents how this program delivers on its promises. Features, observations and personal accounts.

Johns Hopkins Bayview, a major teaching, clinical and research facility of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, offers a friendly, welcoming and supportive environment for academic medicine. The combination of a talented, dedicated faculty, a unique blend of ambulatory and inpatient training, and exposure to known generalists and sub-specialists allow residents and housestaff the opportunity to become leaders in their chosen fields.

Nationally-recognized for outstanding curriculum and innovations in medical education, the General Internal Medicine Residency Program is fully-accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Embracing Diversity

Hardly any other residency program serves as diverse a patient population, in terms of socioeconomic status, medical conditions and ethnicity, as the program at Johns Hopkins Bayview. This aspect adds a valuable richness to education for medical residents.

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Internal Medicine Residency Program was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Provost's Office of Johns Hopkins University as part of the University's Mosaic Initiative. The residency program used the funding to augment its efforts to attract the most talented underrepresented minority students from across the country to our residency program, ensure a most outstanding experience for those residents, and to continue to foster a culture of diversity and inclusiveness within the program.

Diversity Graph

The Medical Center and the University  also promotes diversity among faculty, staff and students, as well as patients and visitors, and provide a welcoming environment for residents of different cultures and backgrounds. Many residents, staff, and faculty have chose to join the OUTList , a directory of lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered people that are part of Hopkins.

Twenty-five percent of the current housestaff are from ethnic and racial groups that traditionally are under-represented in medicine.
