The PGY1 Community Pharmacy Residency at Johns Hopkins Home Care Group is a 12-month full-time curriculum. The Johns Hopkins Home Care Group operates seven outpatient pharmacies between three hospitals within the Johns Hopkins Health System, a vertically integrated, multi-institutional system for medical service delivery, in support of patient care, education, and research missions.
The program emphasizes the development of advanced practical skills needed by community pharmacy practitioners concentrating on enhancing existing clinical services and implementing pharmacy practice programs. The experience is individualized to each resident to develop clinical, analytical, teaching, and leadership skills. Residents will have opportunities to provide patient care services including medication therapy management, immunizations, and specialty compounding.
The residents will work in a collaborative environment with exposure to diverse clinical specialty areas, including solid organ transplant, infectious disease, geriatrics, oncology, and psychiatry. Opportunities to precept students and provide Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) programs are available.
Collaboration with providers in an integrated health system will be emphasized through trans-disciplinary care to improve patient outcomes.
