Students in the Pharmacy Technician program work through various compounding scenarios during a recent weekend laboratory experience on campus. The program, which is fully-accredited, prepares students for careers in various pharmacy centers and offices. Once students complete the program, they are ready to sit for the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam and have an edge over students in other non-certified programs. The program is also available online and clinicals can be conducted where students are located.
