This rotating Inpatient and Ambulatory Clinical Pharmacy Specialist, in collaboration with two other specialists, will be responsible for the provision and oversight of pharmacotherapy for adult myeloma, blood and marrow transplant (BMT), and lymphoma patients in both the acute care setting and the Inpatient Outpatient (IPOP) Clinic. The IPOP Clinic allows for patients undergoing BMT or treatment for hematologic malignancies to receive safe, quality, and cost-effective outpatient care, while minimizing the need for hospitalization.
Our unique rotating inpatient and ambulatory model provides continuity of care throughout the transplant and treatment processes, including non-myeloablative and myeloablative hematopoietic stem cell transplant conditioning regimens, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, cellular therapy, stem cell infusions, and donor lymphocyte infusions.
Responsibilities will include rounding with a multidisciplinary team, assisting with discharge coordination, managing questions and clinical issues related to patients receiving chemotherapy and hematopoietic stem cell transplant, providing patient education with a focus on antimicrobials and immunosuppression, participating in antimicrobial stewardship activities, and coordinating care transitions between the IPOP clinic and inpatient MTL and hematologic malignancy care teams.
The Clinical Pharmacy Specialist will also provide education to students, residents, pharmacists, and other health care practitioners and serve as a preceptor for pharmacy residents of ASHP-accredited PGY-1 pharmacy practice and PGY-2 specialty practice programs. Faculty appointments are available through affiliations with the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Additionally, the successful candidate will support research conducted by the institution and assume a leadership role in the profession of pharmacy.
Preferred qualifications for this position include the completion of a PharmD degree, PGY1 residency, and PGY2 specialty residency in oncology with experience in blood and marrow transplant. Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) certification is required within two years of start date.

About The Johns Hopkins Hospital

This model, the first of its kind, would lead to a national and international reputation for excellence and discovery.Today, Johns Hopkins uses one overarching name—Johns Hopkins Medicine—to identify its entire medical enterprise. This $6.7 billion system unites the physicians and scientists of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine with the health professionals and facilities that make up the broad, integrated Johns Hopkins Health System.
