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.
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.
