Pharmacy residencies and fellowships at Geisinger
Geisinger's pharmacy residency and fellowship programs will give you the training you need to become a highly skilled pharmacist.
Geisinger is proud to offer a robust selection of PGY1 and PGY2 residency training opportunities across our service region. Our programs create opportunities for residents in acute care and ambulatory care settings of all types, allowing residents to train in the setting in which they feel most comfortable or plan to start their career. From smaller, rural hospitals where the pharmacist is the medication expert for several services to larger medical centers with specialized services, the hospital-based programs each offer their own unique pharmacy character while maintaining the innovative pharmacy practice Geisinger strives to uphold. Residency programs in our ambulatory care facilities meet the rigors set forth in the hospital-based programs, but tailor the practice environment to caring for chronic conditions.
All pharmacy residency programs at Geisinger are accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. The programs are designed to build on Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education and outcomes to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists who are responsible for medication-related care of patients with a wide range of conditions, eligible for board certification and eligible to apply for future training programs.
Besides residencies, Geisinger is proud to offer a postdoctoral fellowship in research and innovation. This two-year program is designed to develop pharmacists with an interest in transforming pharmacy practice through research and innovation so they can step into a research or leadership position with confidence and skill.
