The residency focuses on the development of expert competencies and skills needed to provide pharmaceutical care to pain management and palliative care patients. Graduates of the program will be highly qualified independent practitioners and educators who display professionalism and leadership. It is assumed that the resident already possesses basic knowledge and competencies in institutional and clinical pharmacy practice gained through completion of a PGY1 Pharmacy Residency. The specific program for each resident may vary in structure and area of emphasis based on the individual resident’s entering knowledge, skills, and interests. This program is designed to provide advanced training in clinical pharmacy practice focusing on patient care, clinical research and education in pain management and palliative care. A multidisciplinary approach to inpatient and outpatient pain management and palliative care is used. Patient care experiences occur in the cancer center, neurosciences, acute and chronic pain services, addiction medicine and hospice. The longitudinal is completed in the Pain and Palliative Care clinic in the cancer center. Other experiences may include the psychiatric pain service, pediatric pain service and teaching opportunities at the Colleges of Pharmacy in the Baltimore area.
