The PGY2 Pediatric Specialty Residency at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is a 12-month, ASHP accredited program designed to foster the development of the clinical knowledge, research skills and leadership experience necessary to provide comprehensive and high quality pharmaceutical care to pediatric patients. Pharmacists completing this program will have made great strides at earning professional credibility and be capable of functioning with a high level of maturity, professionalism, and expertise in their chosen pediatric pharmacy career path.

Elective rotations are available in a variety of subspecialty areas and tailored to fit the strengths and interests of the resident. In addition, residents complete a formal, longitudinal research curriculum culminating in a medication use evaluation (MUE) and formal project, both suitable for presentation at a national pharmacy meeting and publication submission.
Residents also participate in hospital committees and work groups, formal and informal case presentations, journal clubs, healthcare team inservices, medication safety and regulatory activities, the cystic fibrosis consult service, discharge teaching and the Medical Emergency Team. Opportunities also exist for both clinical and didactic teaching. The resident is required to provide service time every fourth weekend.

About Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital
Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital provides expert pediatric care for children and families from all across the state of Florida and beyond. We provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care for infants, children and teens with some of the most challenging medical problems.
As a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, we provide access to the most innovative treatments and therapies. Taking part in pediatric medical education and clinical research helps us to provide world-class care in more than 43 pediatric medical and surgical subspecialties.
More than half of 259 beds are devoted to intensive care level services. We are the regional pediatric referral center for Florida's west coast. Physicians and community hospitals count on us to care for critically ill patients and to perform complex surgical procedures.
Parents count on us, too. Our philosophy of family-centered care means that family members are an important part of the healthcare team. We put this philosophy into action by including parents in making decisions and plans for their child's care. Patients who are old enough to take part in these discussions are included, too.
We asked patients, parents and our staff ...to share ideas to help us design the 259-bed Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital that we opened in January 2010. The result was a spacious and bright hospital with individual rooms where parents can comfortably spend the night. Combining the latest technology and our commitment to family-centered care, our hospital provides an ideal environment for healing.
