Pediatric Pharmacy Residency Program

PGY1 Pharmacy Residency

The PGY1 Pharmacy Residency at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital is a 12-month, ASHP Accredited program designed to foster the development of both clinical and operational skills in pediatric pharmacy. Residents in the PGY1 Pharmacy Residency Program have the opportunity to accelerate their growth beyond entry-level professional competence in patient-centered care and in pharmacy operational services. The residency year provides a fertile environment for developing leadership skills and professional excellence through supervised practice under the guidance of model practitioners. Upon completion of the PGY1 program, residents will be trained pharmaceutical care providers able to work in many clinical positions or seek advanced training in a PGY2 specialized residency.

Residents are involved in many activities such as: cystic fibrosis PK program, medication use evaluation, formulary monograph, pharmacy operations/clinical practice (providing service two weekends every four weeks), teaching opportunities, and formal research project. Residents are also expected to join the Medical Emergency Team and Pharmacy & Therapeutics committee.
