  • Johns Hopkins Home Care Group Pharmacy Services encompasses 13 pharmacies in the Baltimore area, including at the Johns Hopkins Hospital East Baltimore campus and Bayview Medical Center. Each pharmacy is open to all patients and specializes in certain patient populations, including discharge patients, HIV/AIDS, cancer, geriatrics, and pediatrics. Often, these specialties align with nearby clinics. In addition, outpatient pharmacies provide medication therapy management, immunizations, home infusion therapies, and clinical management of chronic diseases, including solid organ transplant, hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory conditions (Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis). 

  • Residents receive a list of goals and objectives at the beginning of each rotation. At the end of the concentrated rotations, they meet with their preceptor to review their performance.  For longitudinal rotations, residents review their performance with their preceptor quarterly.  On a quarterly basis, the director of the residency program provides residents with an evaluation of their progress based on preceptors’ comments.

  • Mentorship is an integral part of the residency program. Residents will be assigned a facilitator who will support them throughout their full residency year. Additionally, facilitators review the resident’s development plan and collaborate with their preceptors and RPD to ensure that residents progress through the program. In addition, other pharmacists within the organization serve as informal mentors to our residents.

  • Residents are required to design, conduct, and evaluate a major project related to an aspect of pharmacy practice during the residency year that aligns with the organizations strategic priorities.

  • Residents are required to deliver one ACPE-accredited continuing education presentation. They also must provide in-services to the pharmacy teams throughout the year depending on the rotation. In addition, residents present the results of their major project to the preceptors before presenting the results at a regional residency conference: the Eastern States Residency Conference.

  • Consistent with the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists Commission on Credentialing standards, the Hopkins residency experience is primarily a practical, rather than didactic or classroom experience.  Practice skills are developed throughout the program in all aspects of pharmaceutical care. Residents will staff in the pharmacy one shift during the week and every third weekend. Residents primarily work at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Pharmacy at Bayview location.  This is a diverse location which services patients discharged from the Bayview Medical Center, as well as individual s from the local community including pediatric, adult and geriatric patients.  Residents are involved with verification, drug information questions, vaccinations and patient education.

  • Residents are required to actively participate in at least one professional pharmacy organization during their residency year. The RPD, facilitators, and preceptors assist the resident to identify roles within a local or national organization that align with their interests.

    Residents also are able to engage in numerous opportunities to support the local community through events such as Drug Take Back Day, vaccination clinics, community and support groups.
  • Residents are encouraged to obtain licensure in the state of Maryland as soon as possible to maximize their training as a pharmacist. If residents are not licensed within 90 days of their start date, they may be dismissed from the program.

  • A resident’s stipend is approximately $50,000 for PGY1 pharmacy residents and approximately $52,000 for PGY2 residents.
