Faculty Development and Academics

Faculty Development Sessions

Sessions are regularly scheduled for the 2nd Wednesdays of the month from 12:00 - 1:00 PM. Through these sessions, we aim to help faculty improve their skills in multiple areas, including medical education, leadership development, research, and professional development.  

Examples of prior sessions include:

  • Goals of Care Frameworks for Time Limited Conversations
  • Hospital Finances
  • Introduction to the Clinician-Educator Mentoring and Scholarship Program
  • Inpatient Opioid Use Disorder Management
  • Care Management Overview
  • Challenging Patient Encounters
  • Wound Care Overview for Hospitalists
  • Hyponatremia
  • Management of Obstructive Lung Disease

Academic Support

Faculty members are encouraged and supported to pursue scholarship.

To facilitate academics, our division features the Johns Hopkins Hospitalist Scholars Program, an innovative program designed to provide academic funding (up to $12,000 per year) for each faculty member who seeks to build an academic career at Hopkins. Our faculty also benefit from fruitful academic collaboration with other faculty in the division and across other specialties. We have a broad range of academic interests ranging from venous thromboembolic disease to system innovations that improve hospital efficiency and patient engagement.

Our division also features the Johns Hopkins Hospitalist Division Innovation Grants, which provide academic funding (up to $30,000 per year) to support full-time and part-time faculty members. Successful proposals can support a variety of projects, including research, operational, educational, and/or quality and safety activities.

GIM Academic Resources

Clinician-Educator Mentoring & Scholarship Program

General Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins is home to over 30 outstanding Clinician-Educators whose primary responsibility is providing expert patient care at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and it affiliated practices at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center and Green Spring Station. Clinician-Educators also play a leading role in teaching medical students, residents, fellows and peers. Although primed to excel in these settings from the outset, most Clinician-Educators need additional mentorship to develop into nationally recognized academicians. On October 1, 2007, Hopkins GIM established the Clinician-Educator Mentoring and Scholarship Program (CEMSP) to meet this need.

Methods Core

The GIM Methods Core was established in July 2008 to provide integrated research services to the Division faculty and fellows and to Osler Housestaff. The Methods Core is home to methodologically oriented PhD faculty in the GIM Division with expertise in epidemiology, biostatistics, behavioral medicine, and data analysis. These faculty members oversee a team of graduate research assistants prepared to conduct statistical analysis for research projects conducted by Clinician-Educators.
