What you will learn.

Pharmacy technician students will learn to verify that information on the prescription is complete and accurate, to prepare a prescription, and to retrieve, count, pour, weigh, measure, and sometimes mix medications. Successful completion of the PhT program will include a clinical internship at an affiliated health-care and retail facility.

Our program uses PioneerRx, the best pharmacy software, so our students can apply the knowledge and methods they learn in the classroom to a simulated pharmacy environment. For more information, visit See what pharmacists around the nation are saying about PioneerRx at Pharmacy Software Reviews.
