The Department of Pharmacy at The Johns Hopkins Hospital is converting the very well-established, ASHP-accredited PGY1/2 Pharmacotherapy residency program into a PGY2 Internal Medicine residency program starting with the 2024-2025 academic year. While the Internal Medicine program is new, the Department of Pharmacy at The Johns Hopkins Hospital has over 15 years of experience training skilled and versatile practitioners in internal medicine and internal medicine subspecialities within the Pharmacotherapy residency program, with our robust and diverse experiences positioning graduates for success in a wide variety of internal medicine 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 internal medicine rotations include adult internal medicine, medical intensive care unit (MICU), infectious diseases, and cardiology experiences. In addition to these core rotations, the program boasts a wide range of elective options including but not limited to psychiatry, benign hematology with antithrombotic/hemostatic stewardship, addiction medicine consult service, emergency medicine, solid organ transplantation (hepatology, kidney/pancreas, cardiothoracic), pain management/palliative care, medical oncology, inpatient HIV/ID service, inpatient hepatology service, and more. There are also opportunities for longitudinal ambulatory care experience within internal medicine, anticoagulation, or heart failure ambulatory clinics. One rotation will be completed at our affiliate hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, also located in Baltimore, MD.
Other longitudinal experiences focus on research (dedicated time provided), education (including ACPE-accredited presentations, internal medicine-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 internal medicine 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 ASHP Midyear, Eastern States Residency Conference, and other national 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.
