The Pharmacy Technician Program (PHT) is designed in accordance with the standards of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). Students are prepared with pharmacy fundamentals and essential technical skills necessary for entry-level technician positions, where they work under a pharmacists’ supervision. Program graduates are also employed in various healthcare settings related to the pharmacy profession.
The program spans two semesters, 15 weeks each in length. The second semester is divided into classroom and laboratory courses, followed by 8 weeks of clinical externship, in both Community (4 weeks) and Institutional (4 weeks) pharmacy settings. All courses require either acceptance into the program or the written approval of the PHT Department Chair.
All didactic courses for this certificate are offered in an online/hybrid format, with mandatory face-to-face campus sessions to facilitate hands-on learning in a simulated pharmacy lab setting. Upon successful completion of the didactic and externship phases, students will be prepared to sit for the national pharmacy technician certification exam offered by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board.
A clear background check and random drug screen must be completed at the onset of the program. Documentation of immunizations (2 MMRs, chickenpox, at least 2 Hepatitis B, Tdap vaccine, and a current TB test) are pre-requisites for the Pharmacy Internships.
