This Advanced Certificate program in Pharmacy Technology prepares students for employment as Pharmacy Technicians. The program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Pharmacy technicians assist and support licensed pharmacists in providing health care and medications to patients. They may perform many of the same duties as pharmacists, but all technicians’ work must be checked by a pharmacist before medication is dispensed. While Pharmacy Technicians can work everywhere pharmacists work, some state laws may limit the duties they perform.
A special application is required for entry into the program. Upon acceptance into the program, students must provide proof of current health insurance and recent medical examination.
