Purpose: The PGY1/PGY2 Medication-Use Safety and Policy program is a 24-month specialty residency 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 training experience in the first year is composed of four competency areas: 1) patient care; 2) advancing practice and improving patient care; 3) leadership and management; and 4) teaching, education and dissemination of knowledge. The training experience in the second year focuses on medication safety and quality improvement. The resident will work closely with the medication safety, quality, and formulary management teams 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. The resident has the opportunity to rotate at The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) as well as complete a longitudinal educational experience through the Johns Hopkins Armstrong Institute of Patient Safety and Quality Leadership Academy.

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.
