The Division of General Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins is home to one of the nation's premier fellowship training programs in academic general internal medicine, and also offers several other exciting fellowship opportunities.
The GIM Fellowship is proud of our over 140 alumni who have made their mark as researchers, educators, and leaders. Supported by federal grants for 30 consecutive years, the overall goal of the Hopkins GIM Fellowship is to prepare general internists to assume faculty and leadership positions in GIM and Public Health. Hopkins GIM Fellows come from across the United States and have a wide array of research interests including clinical epidemiology, preventive medicine, health services research, women's health, health disparities, ethics, and medical education. The Program is two or three years in length and offers three specifically designed tracks, a Clinical Research Track, a Medical Education Track, and a Hospitalist Research Track. Hopkins GIM encourages research in many areas of methodologic and content expertise, offering research training in tandem with other programs of excellence across Johns Hopkins University.
The Johns Hopkins Hospice and Palliative Medicine (HPM) Fellowship Training Program received initial accreditation from the ACGME in 2012 and continued accreditation in 2015. The goal of our fellowship is to train specialist palliative medicine physicians who excel as clinicians, teachers, team members, leaders, lifelong learners and catalysts for improving the quality of hospice and palliative medicine across the lifespan and within health systems. The HPM fellowship program is a 12-month clinical fellowship and includes rotations at different facilities, providing a diversity of clinical settings, patient demographics and acuity. Each site has a dedicated HPM Fellowship site director to guide and mentor the fellow through their rotation. Physician faculty members are all specialized in Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and provide clinical supervision and teaching as attending physicians for each of the clinical rotations.
Johns Hopkins is home to one of the nation's fellowship training programs in obesity medicine, and is a member of the Obesity Medicine Fellowship Council. The fellowship offers a diverse array of clinical training experiences within obesity medicine. Fellows dedicate patient care time at the Johns Hopkins Healthful Eating, Activity and Weight Program under the supervision of multiple faculty preceptors certified by the American Board of Obesity Medicine. The Program is one to four years in length and offers two specifically designed tracks, a one-year Clinician Track and a three to four-year Clinician Investigator Track. All fellows also have a variety of opportunities to teach residents, medical students or other trainees, as well as participate in research or quality improvement activities.
