Urban Health Practice
East Baltimore Medical Center (EBMC), an FQHC look-alike, is the centerpiece of each resident’s community outpatient experience. EBMC, is located off-campus in one of the most underserved and disadvantaged communities in the city. EBMC houses a thriving med-peds, pediatric, obstetrics and gynecology, and internal medicine clinic. EBMC is also the epicenter for Johns Hopkins’ health zone community outreach program, The Access Program (TAP). TAP allows our primary care patients to access specialty care at Hopkins.
The EBMC Urban Health clinic is designed to provide Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) level care. The PCMH is a team-based model of care led by a personal physician who provides continuous and coordinated care throughout a patient's lifetime to maximize health outcomes. Physicians engage in a collaborative effort, providing high levels of access, communication, care coordination and integration, care quality, and safety. Residents engage in inter-professional care of patients as they partner with case managers, pharmacists, behavioral health specialists, and community health workers.
