A Pharmacy Technician is a licensed healthcare professional within the health care team. This program offers low student-teacher ratios with experts who continue to work in the field. Pharmacy Technician students gain the knowledge, skills and professionalism required for success in retail, hospital, long-term care and specialty settings. Students learn about relevant legislation, health care ethics, anatomy and physiology, pharmacology, customer care, hospital and retail software systems, calculations, inventory management, hospital practice, and infection control.

Traditional in-class instruction is coupled with blended learning and then enhanced through teamwork, role playing activities, guest speakers and innovative lessons. A fully equipped community/hospital lab provides students with hands-on experience dispensing medications, compounding pharmaceutical products and developing aseptic techniques.
