Residents are required to attend a variety of meetings and conferences, including departmental, administrative staff meetings, committees, clinical meetings, and professional meetings. In most cases, the preceptor will assign meeting attendance at the beginning of the month. In other cases, the resident will be asked to attend a specific meeting by another preceptor to enhance the resident's education experience or assist with the development of a project. Meeting times and locations are found on the departmental calendar.
The following meetings are mandatory to those on rotation at Hopkins Hospital.
- Friday Resident Meeting:
This meeting, held weekly with the Director of Pharmacy or a designee, serves to keep the resident informed of progress and developments in the department. It also serves as a forum for didactic presentations of management topics as well as to broaden the residents' knowledge of professional issues.
- Departmental Meetings:
The purpose of these monthly meetings is to inform the pharmacy staff of developments occurring throughout The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Health System
