The Resident Primary Care Clinic is a general internal medicine practice at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center. You will cared for by a collaborative team of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, technicians, and support staff. At the Primary Care Clinic, we diagnose and treat a wide range of health conditions, performing routine health examinations as well as managing acute and chronic conditions. We also conduct preventative care, disease education, and help coordinate any medical specialty needs.

As part of an academic medical center, you will be seen by resident physicians (residents). Residents are doctors who have completed medical school and are pursuing a three-year educational program in general internal medicine. Attending physicians, who are board certified doctors and have completed their residency training programs, supervise and work alongside residents in the clinic. When your resident completes their educational program, your physician will transition your care to a new resident.

Whenever possible, you will be scheduled with your PCP. However, if you need to be seen in clinic or urgently speak with a physician during a time when your PCP is not available, a covering physician familiar with your history will step in to take care of you.

Complex Patient Clinic

The HEROIC (High-risk Outpatient Intern Led Care) Clinic is now available for patients with rare or complex medical conditions. This clinic setup is a one-year intensive program where patients are re-assigned a new resident as their PCP. Medical sessions are longer in duration (up to 1.5 hours), giving patients enough time to discuss their concerns and physicians sufficient time to address them. PCPs will work with a small team of physicians during each visit. The clinic is held on Monday and Tuesday afternoons but urgent visits can also be accommodated in the traditional clinic environment. After a year in this program, patients continue to be followed by their same PCP but in the general resident clinic.

How to Enroll: Ask your PCP to contact the director of the program, Jeremy Epstein, MD, to see if you may benefit. Or as a patient, you can e-mail the group directly at Be sure to provide your name and date of birth so your medical record can be reviewed.
