Freeland Receives Funding for GIMboree

Deborah Freeland, primary care resident in the Johns Hopkins Bayview Internal Medicine Residency Program, received a national grant from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for her project, "The GIMboree Experience: Enhancing Joy in Outpatient Medicine.” GIMBoree consists of monthly GIM/primary care evening events that allow for residents and faculty to discuss issues pertinent to their outpatient medicine practice, review recent relevant literature and hear from guest speakers about their careers and journey. Patients will also be invited to attend some of the upcoming events to share their health care experiences. Plans are in place to expand this experience to residents in the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Med-Peds and Urban Health IM programs. Paul O’Rourke, assistant professor in General Internal Medicine and associate program director of the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medicine Residency, serves as her mentor on this project.

Johns Hopkins Bayview primary care residents and various faculty enjoy a GIMBoree event in the home of Dr. David Kern
