The Pharmacy Technology program prepares you to function as an allied health professional under the direction of a registered pharmacist in a hospital or retail pharmacy. Pharmacy technicians are responsible for measuring, mixing, counting, labeling, and recording amounts and dosages of medications, verifying prescriptions from physicians, and maintaining patient records and insurance information. You will receive hands–on training in a hospital or retail pharmacy, and be eligible to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination after graduation. Pharmacy technicians generally find work in health and personal care stores, medical and surgical hospitals, and grocery stores.
