Purpose: The residency focuses on the development of competencies needed to provide comprehensive medication management in pain and palliative care patients. 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.
Program Overview: This program is designed to provide advanced training in clinical pharmacy practice focusing on patient care, clinical research and education in pain and palliative care. A multidisciplinary approach to inpatient and outpatient pain management and palliative care is used. Patient care experiences occur in neurosciences, palliative care services, acute and chronic pain services, addiction medicine and hospice. The longitudinal clinic is completed in the 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. Teaching opportunities and enrollment in a Teaching Certificate program are available through the Colleges of Pharmacy in the Baltimore area.

About Johns Hopkins Hospital
From the 1889 opening of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, to the opening of the School of Medicine four years later, there emerged the concept of combining research, teaching and patient care. 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.
