Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy Technicians assist pharmacists with technical and detail-oriented tasks in both community and hospital pharmacy settings. Students learn skills to assist with the preparation of oral and intravenous medications, filling prescriptions, and use of automated dispensing machines. Pharmacy technicians can work in hospitals, retail stores, neighborhood pharmacies, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and mail-order facilities.
