The Department of Pharmacy at The Johns Hopkins Hospital has a well-established, ASHP-accredited PGY2 Critical Care Pharmacy residency program. With over 20 years of training critical care pharmacy residents, our robust and diverse experiences position graduates for success in a wide variety of critical care environments.
Located in Baltimore, MD, The Johns Hopkins Hospital is a 1194-bed academic medical center with level I trauma and comprehensive stroke center designations and serves as a tertiary referral center and the flagship hospital of the health system. The Department of Pharmacy, in alignment with Johns Hopkins Medicine, is centered around patient care, teaching, and research and encompasses a large number of pharmacy residency programs with over 30 pharmacy residents.
Core critical care rotations include medicine, surgery, cardiology, cardiac surgery, and neurosciences experiences within 6 adult intensive care units (ICUs) in addition to the emergency department. In addition to repeating core experiences, elective experiences include pediatric and burn ICU rotations. One rotation will be completed at our affiliate hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, also located in Baltimore, MD.
Longitudinal experiences focus on research (dedicated time provided), education (including ACPE-accredited presentations, critical care-focused topic discussions, precepting opportunities, and an optional teaching and learning certificate program), and institutional service (including a health system formulary management project and committee participation). Additionally, the critical care resident will participate in the in-house pharmacy resident on-call program which focuses on adult and pediatric inpatient and emergency department code response. Staffing will occur approximately every third weekend in the Adult Medicine, Emergency and Surgery pharmacy division. Residents are eligible to receive full support to attend SCCM Annual Congress, ASHP Midyear, and Eastern States Residency Conference meetings in addition to other professional development opportunities.
Note: In addition to completion of an ASHP- accredited PGY1 Pharmacy residency, the resident must be authorized to work in the US. JHH The Johns Hopkins Hospital does not sponsor work visas.

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.
