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.
This 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 disease state management. The residents will work in a collaborative environment with exposure to diverse clinical specialty areas, including solid organ transplant, infectious disease, geriatrics, oncology, and transitions of care. 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.
