The Pharmacy Technician is an integral member of the health care team. Pharmacy Technicians work with pharmacists in the preparation and distribution of pharmaceutical products in a variety of health care settings, including hospital and community pharmacies. Duties of a Pharmacy Technician include: data entry, counting, pouring and labeling pharmaceutical products, customer service, sterile product preparation, and inventory management. The Pharmacy Technician program is a one-year certificate that combines classroom and laboratory instruction with clinical experiences in local pharmacies. The program accepts students each fall for evening classes and each spring for morning classes. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the National Pharmacy Technician Certification exam.
Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to the Pharmacy Technician program. Applicants admitted to the program are required to have a physical examination, documentation of immunizations, and verification of tuberculosis status.
This Pharmacy Technician program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), 7272 Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda, MA, 20814; phone (301) 657-3000.
