Patient-Centered, Team-Driven Problem Solving. Individualized Education.

The mission of the GBMC Internal Medicine Residency Program is to develop physician leaders who practice evidence-based medicine lifelong; who transform healthcare systems to become patient-centered, safe, and efficient; and who promote the health and wellness of the community.

Meet the Internal Medicine Residency Program at GBMC
Welcome! We are delighted to have you train in our program at GBMC. We believe that this is an exceptional environment in which to train. GBMC is a successful community-based academic medical center at the cutting edge of innovation in healthcare delivery. Its success, even in a global budget environment (the only state in the U.S. with this healthcare cost-controlling system), is due to strong leadership and its commitment to always deliver the best healthcare, the kind we would want for ourselves and our families. Based in Towson, just outside Baltimore, GBMC has a catchment area of 1.2 million with patient referrals up to 100 miles away and includes populations diverse in all sociodemographic categories, medical conditions, and medical complexity.

The GBMC Internal Medicine Residency Program recognizes the need for primary care physicians who can heal and lead in all corners of the U.S. healthcare space. As an agile independent hospital in the Baltimore area dedicated to quality and reliability, in close proximity to government and CMS (a driver of innovation in healthcare), in the only state with a global payment system, and with affiliations to Johns Hopkins University, we are well-positioned to prepare our trainees to adapt to and lead change in healthcare. From a scholarship perspective, our department leads the country in supporting a widely circulated medical journal (JCHIMP). We prepare our residents for the many forces which will disrupt, reshape and shift the U.S. healthcare system from the way we know it today. These forces include rapid developments in artificial intelligence and other electronic tools, financial pressures, patient expectations, new therapies, demographic shifts, and the necessity to create a resilient and supportive community that might thrive in this environment. To be successful in this changing environment, residents will need both solid foundational diagnostic and management skills and flexible problem solving and leadership skills. GBMC seeks to match medical students with a strong desire to engage these challenges, whether through patient safety and quality, business of medicine, data management and analysis, education, team leadership, or advocacy.

We hope that you will give us an opportunity to interview you and show you how our program will evolve in the next year to be the leader in primary care training. Read more about our program philosophy.

GBMC is located in a rich environment of world-class academic institutions. Its close proximity to several of the nation's most renowned academic healthcare systems allows residents to experience an intimate community setting while gaining competitive skills usually only acquired in a larger institution. Our formal affiliation is with the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Our PGY-2 residents all rotate through Neurology at Johns Hopkins and Cardiology Consults at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and many others do research and clinical electives with faculty there and at the University of Maryland. Medical students from both Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland rotate on our medical teams, as we are a primary site for their Internal Medicine clerkships.
Our core faculty members, from various distinguished backgrounds, are unified by their commitment to teaching and their devotion to the residency program. All faculty members have open door policies, work closely with the residents and directly observe their clinical skills in order to provide useful feedback to help them grow as physicians. Promoting a strong learning experience, faculty members are also dedicated to preparing residents for highly competitive fellowship opportunities.

GBMC is on the leading edge of the utilization of healthcare information technology, from electronic health records (EHR) and patient portals to computerized provider order entry (CPOE). These advancements have enhanced patient safety as well as outcomes, allowing physicians and care providers to better track and coordinate each patient's care.

In 2016, GBMC was proud to join the EPIC family of EMRs. Medical students with experience using EPIC are particularly encouraged to apply.
GBMC is a 342-bed medical center (acute and sub-acute care) is located on a beautiful suburban campus that handles more than 23,000 admissions and over 52,000 emergency room visits annually. Since its founding in 1965, GBMC HealthCare’s accomplishments have validated the vision of GBMC’s founders to combine the best of community and university-level medicine. GBMC’s main campus also includes three medical office buildings — Physicians Pavilion East, Physicians Pavilion West and the William E. Kahlert Physicians Pavilion North. In addition to its main campus located in Towson, GBMC Health Partners primary care practices can be found throughout the community with extended and weekend hours in convenient locations including Hunt Manor, Hunt Valley, Owings Mills, Texas Station, Perry Hall, Joppa Road and Jarrettsville. Gilchrist provides medical care, counseling and support to patients and their families at every stage of serious illness, even well before hospice is needed. Gilchrist serves more than 7,600 patients each year—in homes, residential care communities and other medical settings, and at our three inpatient hospice centers in Towson, Howard County and Baltimore. In addition, Gilchrist provides grief counseling and other bereavement services to 6,500 families throughout central Maryland.

GBMC is particularly proud of its transparency regarding safety and quality. Check out what we're doing for patient and quality measures.

Excellence in Primary Care

Hands-on experience at an innovative internal medicine practice

WATCH: A Day in the Life of the Internal Medicine Residency Practice
GBMC has fully embraced the concept of the patient-centered medical home. All of its practices, including the Internal Medicine Residency practice (referred to internally as "the clinic"), have been recognized as level 3 Physician Practice Connections-Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PPC-PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This means residents practice with full support from not only their attending physicians, but also a care manager, care coordinator and nurse practitioner, allowing residents to deliver a degree of care that many others cannot. We have a behavioral health care manager and a pharmacist on site to deliver the best education to patients and residents.

The clinic's innovative design maximizes residents' relationship with patients while also protecting them in their inpatient duties. The Internal Medicine Resident will spend one week in clinic every six weeks. This unique structure allows patients robust follow up and promotes the resident's longitudinal relationship with their patients.
