Osler Medical Residency

The Osler program is the nation’s first residency program, providing rigorous, evidence-based training in general internal medicine and in highly specialized aspects of medicine. It is founded upon Sir William Osler’s core belief that physicians must learn medicine at the bedside and employ cutting-edge research to solve unmet clinical needs.

Shared Opportunities

A collaborative council will ensure that residents on both campuses can take full advantage of all opportunities.

Pathways Program

Physician Scientist Pathway

The Physician Scientist Pathway

Designed to enhance the recruitment and development of physician-scientists with high aspirations for scientific discovery. We envision an ecosystem that inspires the thrill of discovery for all our trainees and will harness the vast pool of gifted mentors and physician-scientists to engage trainees in various forums including journal clubs, research seminars, and social events. Embedded within the system is a structured pathway with resources, mentorship, and opportunities for individual development. Our Physician Scientist Pathway partners closely with the School of Medicine Physician Science Training Program.

 

Global Health Pathway

The Global Health Pathway

Designed to develop residents for diverse careers in global health. The pathway offers a portfolio (with varying degrees of engagement) of structured opportunities. The selected residents will participate in clinical and research-based global health rotations. The rotation sites will be in low and middle-income countries where Hopkins has a strong footprint and history of mentorship support. Residents would spend 4-8 weeks continuously in a country and would be introduced to relevant fellowship and faculty opportunities upon completion.

Patient Safety and Quality Pathway

The Patient Safety and Quality Pathway

Designed to provide residents with unique, guided education in patient safety, quality and high value medical care. Residents in this pathway will receive certificate-level training from the Armstrong Institute of Patient Safety, join institutional and departmental safety and quality committees, learn from didactic teaching, lead morbidity and mortality conferences, and complete a formally mentored capstone project.

 

Medical Education Pathway

The Medical Education Pathway

Designed to prepare residents for a career in medical education by training participants in curriculum development, education scholarship, leadership and administration, teaching, and other relevant skills. Participants will engage in a structured longitudinal curriculum that will utilize didactics, peer coaching, direct observations and formal mentorship from medical education faculty. Participants will also rotate on medical education electives, during which they will hone the skills they have learned in the pathway, and will complete an education-focused scholarly project.
