Faculty Development and Academics


Leadership Development

Our division develops hospitalists to become the next generation of physician leaders by providing opportunities that strengthen leadership skills. 

All of our faculty members have dedicated time set aside for non-clinical activities, including medical student and resident education, administration, quality improvement, and research. Johns Hopkins hospitalists have leadership roles in education including the Osler Housestaff Residency Program, and as directors of clerkships and sub-internships, the Internal Medicine Consult Service, and in hospital administration.

There are also opportunities to obtain advanced degrees, such as a Master's in Public Health or Master’s in Business Administration, and take courses in quality improvement such as Six Sigma, courses in medical education such as curriculum development and teaching skills, as well as a variety of courses offered by the Office of Faculty Development and the CME office.

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.



GIM Academic Resources

Clinician-Educator Mentoring and Scholarship Program (CEMSP)
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.
