Johns Hopkins Bayview Internal Medicine Residency

December 16, 2019

[MUSIC] I tell everybody who comes here
that everything we do is based on one fundamental belief,
that medicine is a public trust.>>Respiratory rate,
19 satting 90% at room air.>>Medicine is not about
doctors or nurses. It’s about the people,
the families, and the communities we serve.>>These two people
are the decision makers. Together they have to
come to an agreement, but->>And that informs everything
that we do here.>>If you come to the Bayview
internal medicine program, you’re gonna learn to
be a great doctor. You’re gonna learn
the science of medicine and how to apply it to patient care.>>Sir, can I just jump in here? So, once the digoxin came on
board and his rates slowed down, his pressure went up obviously,
and when we->>As residents, we have the privilege and huge responsibility of taking
care of some very ill people. I chose this program because of
the quality in the primary care training program. Some of the founders for
outpatient primary care, Dr. Burton and Dr. Ziev, and others
were based here on this campus. So to be able to interact
with those individuals and to gain tremendous
knowledge from them, was a huge drawing card for
me to come to this program.>>I did not want to be
resident 1 out of 150. I wanted to be someone
unique and someone that all the program directors knew and
had a relationship with, versus being a resident lost
in the sea of a lot of people.>>I really realized that
everything that I could think of or dream of was possible here. He actually has gone
off of insulin.>>My first week here,
I had one of my advisers and mentors email me and
introduce herself. And she actually plugged
me into some really, really powerful
people on campus. I’m able to actually apply for
fellowship, and be able to do amazing
research here.>>You’re back on 25 milligrams,
how often?>>Three times a day.>>One of the things this
program has been known for is the Aliki initiative, which
was designed to be an inpatient experience, a curriculum
where the residents get to know patients really
pretty intimately. And get to know about how
they live their lives, use that information
then to deliver better, more practical treatment plans.>>Doing things like doing
home visits after people are discharged
from the hospital. Spending a lot of time going
over medicine reconciliation.>>I took my pressure meds and
I waited about half an hour.>>And I think that that has
spread from just not the Aliki service, which is an inpatient
wards team that does all areas of the hospital, from the ICU
to the outpatient clinics.>>This is a program
that provides, not only a slogan knowing
your patient is a person, but provides a structure and gives
residents the gift of time.>>The sort of resident who
comes here is the type of person who really likes to roll
up their sleeves and get into to the thick of it and
make a difference. And so they’ve started many
programs while they’re here.>>Or their values that they’ve
expressed in a document. And that’s the purpose of
having an advanced directive.>>Medicine for the greater good was actually
an idea, a brilliant idea that was brought to us
by one of the residents.>>Where our residents engage
in activities that help them reach beyond the traditional
internal medicine training,>>I’ve been working on a variety of projects that
affect the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
communities in around Baltimore, and then also on
a national scale.>>We have so many residents
that are doing such great things, from lobbying
on Capitol Hill, starting hospitals in Haiti. I do something called
Lay Health Educators, where we take community members
and we bring them here for about ten weeks each year. And we have our residents
volunteer to do lectures for them about common health
ailments that they can be able to share with their communities
when they leave here.>>We want our
residents to learn. We want them to enjoy learning,
to have fun learning. And our goal is to
make them fantastic physicians who take
care of patients and who put each and every
patient as the top priority.>>If she’s only paying
25% that’s still $175.>>And I think most
residents are looking for a training program, where they
feel like they fit in, where they’re gonna thrive, where they
can be their best doctor self. And although they’ll have a wide
range of interests that they’re pursuing, they really want to
be at a place where they’re stimulated and challenged,
but yet supported and enjoy their training
at the same time. I think that’s something
that we do very well here. [MUSIC]>>One of the great things
about Johns Hopkins and about the baby residency
program that people may not be thinking about,
is Baltimore and Baltimore City. Because we have a very diverse
patient population, and community here in Baltimore
that is fantastic for practicing medicine and
fantastic for living.>>My Baltimore is a jog
around Sherwood Gardens.>>My Baltimore is the kale,
the cookies, and the peaches at the farmer’s market under
the bridge on Sundays.>>My Baltimore
are the great public schools that my kids go to.>>My Baltimore is salsa dancing
at Solara in East Harbor.>>My Baltimore is the BMA,
and the Cone sisters, and they’re absolutely amazing
collection of impressionist art.>>My Baltimore is
a dirty horchata, a horchata with a shot of
espresso at City Cafe in Mount Vernon with my
husband on a Sunday. [MUSIC]>>When you’re here at Johns
Hopkins Bayview, you’re not only working shoulder to shoulder
with Johns Hopkins faculty, but Johns Hopkins best. [MUSIC]

    If supply and demand is relevant, what is the reason for so many hospitals in Baltimore.

    My dream is to be a great cardiologist and a great human being who can save people's lives and increase their life quality
    Im a fourth medical student in iran and im passing my internal medicine round but what im seeing here in my country is that there is no such care for patients and my patients are suffering from pain and they even dont have primary health care like privacy or clean equipment. On the other hand, our residents and even some of our professors don't pay enough attention to patient and some of them ignore our findings about our patients. They themselves are overwhelmed with work and they have no time for discussing their patients and they have no time for rest and their family.
    I used to dream to come to America and study internal medicine and challenge with my other colleagues about our patient's problems and do researches but what i saw in my internal medicine course made me think that internal medicine resident's quality of life is so low and they have no time to do anything. Im depressed that i must forget my dream . When i saw this clip it seems impossible for me to join your programme one day and follow my dream as ur programs are for genius not someone ordinary like me. But i still dream of working as an internal medicine resident in a highly standard hospital.

    Fabulous video. Thank you for sharing!!! I need your help with this question, which may sound dumb. Will be soon applying for residency in IM. Was lucky to have opportunities for substantial research in digestive diseases/cancer and radiation oncology in med school. I am drawn towards GI as my ultimate career goal. Is it ok to share my ultimate goal during IM residency interview. Since lot of schools probably trains majority of IMs to meet the needs in primary care, urgent care, hospital medicine and so forth. Will I be impacting my chance for IM if I share upfront my underlying intention to do IM is to get into GI?
