The two-year residency is combined with a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A) with an emphasis in Health Care Management (54 credit hours) or a Master of Science (M.S.) in Health Care Management (36 credits hours) from The Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School. The primary objective of the program is to prepare pharmacists to assume leadership positions in hospitals and integrated health care systems. Graduates of the program will have competencies in assessing and resolving the health needs of the public as it relates to the safe and effective use of medication and will be expected to assume a leadership role in pharmacy practice. Participants will gain the business tools and knowledge to understand and analyze the changing nature of today’s complex medical delivery systems, plus the resource management skills and savvy to anticipate and respond to those changes.
The Health-System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership program is designed to offer a strong foundation for residents including robust PGY1 clinical experiences, as well as diverse operational, clinical, and financial management rotations throughout the health system of Johns Hopkins Medicine including The Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH), Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (JHBMC), Johns Hopkins Home Care Group (JHCCG), Howard County Medical Center, (HCGH), Sibley Memorial Hospital (SMH), and Suburban Hospital (SH).
