For over four decades, the University of Maryland at Baltimore’s (UMB) Preventive Medicine Residency (PMR) bears a history as one of the oldest and well-respected preventive medicine residency programs. It is housed in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health (EPH) where a multidisciplinary team of outstanding physician experts is dedicated to training medical students, graduate students, and health professionals to improve the health of the public through the practice of preventive medicine.
In the two-year PMR program, residents complete didactic, research, teaching, and field rotation activities, and earn a Master of Sciences (M.S.) degree in Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine. Both academic and practicum phases of the PMR are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and fulfill the requirements for certification by the American Board of Preventive Medicine.
A distinguishing feature of UMB’s PMR program is a research apprenticeship experience in which residents assume progressive responsibility for planning, executing, and evaluating one or more research projects under close faculty supervision.
Our trained physicians, upon graduation, quickly assume leadership roles in health departments, federal agencies, and academic institutions.
