The Department of Pharmacy at the Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH) has a well-established ASHP accredited PGY2 in Critical Care Pharmacy. Now in our 18th year of training critical care residents, our diverse experiences position graduates for success in virtually all critical care environments.
JHH is an 1194-bed academic medical center in Baltimore, MD. We are a level 1 trauma center. Critical care pharmacy specialists provide care as part of the multidisciplinary team in 6 adult ICUs (~ 100 beds) . The Department of Pharmacy, consistent with the mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine, places a priority on patient care, teaching and research. Critical care experiences offered in this residency include a balance of medical and surgical intensive care experiences (MICU, SICU, CVSICU, CCU, NCCU) in addition to the emergency department. A burn ICU rotation is available offsite, at our affiliate hospital (JH Bayview Medical Center). Dedicated research time is provided.
Preceptors and residents actively participate in antibiotic stewardship activities as part of day-to-day responsibilities throughout the ICUs. The resident will join a group of > 30 residents and will participate in an in-house on call program. There is a large pharmacy student presence in the department and the critical care resident is actively involved in a both didactic and experiential teaching. The resident will provide ACPE accredited lectures, in addition to less formal presentations and topic discussions. An elective teaching certificate is available.
Full support to attend SCCM Annual Congress, ASHP MCM and Eastern States Residency Conference is provided. Staffing responsibilities are roughly one weekend out of three in the critical care pharmacy satellite. When covering on-call duties on the weekend, the resident is relieved from satellite staffing.
NOTE: In addition to completion of an ASHP accredited PGY1 residency, the resident must be authorized to work in the US. JHH does not sponsor work Visas.

About The 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.
