Pharmacy Education

About us

Enterprise Pharmacy is well-positioned across Geisinger’s clinical enterprise to provide a variety of clinical experiences for pharmacy students looking for introductory or advanced pharmacy practice experience rotations. 

Pharmacists host students in several different inpatient, outpatient and administrative practices as well as specialized and unique settings. Our mission with each student is to provide an authentic learning experience in an advanced practice environment. 

Students will work and learn alongside pharmacists integrated into the healthcare team and practicing at the top of their license through collaborative drug therapy management agreements and clinical protocols.

We can’t work directly with students to set up and coordinate rotations. For information on access to our introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences, offices of experiential education should reach out to Daniel Longyhore (, system director of knowledge management for Geisinger Enterprise Pharmacy. 

Pharmacy internships and co-op programs
