PGY1 Community-based Pharmacy Residency Program

The Johns Hopkins Community-based Pharmacy Residency Program is committed to providing residents with a variety of patient care experiences to enhance their skills to become exemplary community pharmacists providing care for a diverse group of patients. Residents are able to customize a schedule that incorporates their areas of interest. The community pharmacies are located within the hospital, which facilitates integration between care teams through the discharge process and during outpatient clinic visits. Residents participate in Medication Therapy Management and offer medication reviews and medication support services in patients homes, via pill box clinic, and telephonically. Electives are available in specialty pharmacy and home infusion.
