Purpose: The Medication-Use Safety and Policy Residency offers advanced training that prepares the resident to assume a leadership role in devising and implementing system changes that improve the safety, efficiency, and appropriateness of the medication-use system.
Program Overview: The resident will work with the medication safety and quality team to investigate medication-related events, assess compliance with regulatory standards and best practice recommendations related to medication-use safety, and develop and implement system changes to ensure safe and efficient use of medications. While the majority of rotations are completed at the hospital, there are also opportunities for away rotations at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP). The resident will also complete a longitudinal educational experience with the Armstrong Institute of Patient Safety and Quality Leadership Academy. Upon completion of this program, the resident will be well positioned to function as a Medication Safety Officer in a health-system setting.

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.
