Fellowship and Careers After Residency

The Johns Hopkins Bayview Internal Medicine Residency Program is structured to train physicians to be healers and leaders in medicine. Historically, program participants have a phenomenal record of passing the ABIM Certifying Examination (a.k.a. "the boards").

Graduates of the program have taken several different professional routes in widely-divergent geographic areas. About one-third pursue careers in general internal medicine (primary care, medical education, public-health-related work or ambulatory-based subspecialties). Two-thirds enter traditional subspecialty disciplines. The success of residents in obtaining post-residency fellowship training positions in medical subspecialties at leading academic medical centers has been extraordinary, with many choosing to remain at Hopkins for fellowship training.
