Combined Family Medicine-Preventive Medicine Residency

About the Program

The Combined Family Medicine-Preventive Medicine Residency is a four-year residency program leading to board certification in both Family Medicine and General Preventive Medicine. The program is a collaboration between MedStar Franklin Square Family Medicine Residency and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) General Preventive Medicine Residency. The goal of the program is to train leaders in family medicine and public health to improve health through partnership, discovery and advocacy.

The Program includes opportunities to:

  • Practice full scope family medicine
  • Participate in general preventive medicine (GPM) training that includes coursework to receive a Master in Public Health (MPH) degree
  • Synthesize clinical and population-based approaches to disease prevention and health promotion
  • View health issues on a broad continuum from local to international in perspective
  • Discover and apply knowledge toward the protection of the public's health
  • Acquire management and epidemiologic skills needed to address the overall health needs of underserved populations
  • Develop clinical skills needed to treat specific diseases that disproportionately affect underserved populations

Application process

  • Apply for the combined program through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) under the Franklin Square Family Medicine program.
  • You must also apply to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health for the MPH/Residency program using the School of Public Health's online application form. Learn more here. (Acceptance by the school's MPH program is required for admission to the joint residency program.)
  • Applicants to the training program should select "MPH/Residency Programs" as their degree program, and indicate a start date one year later than the start date of the Family Medicine year. If you plan to begin the combined program in July 2019, you would use a July 2020 start date for the GPMR/MPH part of the program. 

Please note: Application documents in ERAS may be used for your Hopkins application except for official transcripts from your undergraduate and medical school programs. These documents must be sent directly from your school to the School of Public Health Admissions Office.

The residency program and the MPH admissions committee will review applications once your application is complete.

Application Deadline and Interview Process

Completed applications for the School of Public Health must be received in the Admissions Office by November 20th each year. 

Interviews are usually held in December, January and/or February. While we will do our best to coordinate interviews, the volume of applications and interviews for both programs may result in separate scheduling.
