This two-year residency training program in Pharmacy Informatics at The Johns Hopkins Hospital is defined as an organized, directed postgraduate program of practical experience in pharmacy clinical practice and informatics. The residency is designed to develop expert skills and competencies in pharmacy practice and informatics.
The primary objective of the program is to prepare pharmacists to assume informatics positions in healthcare-related informatics fields.

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.
