Join one of the fastest growing medical occupations in the country!
According to the U.S. Department of Labor the need for certified pharmacy assistants is expected to increase by 32% from 2006 through 2016, exceeding the average for all occupations. In response to the demand, Barry University is offering a new workshop to train individuals to work under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist in a hospital, community or retail setting.
Pharmacy technicians work in clean, organized, well-lighted, and well-ventilated areas. Technicians work the same hours that Pharmacists work. These may include evenings, nights, weekends, and holidays, particularly in facilities that are open 24 hours a day such as hospitals and some retail pharmacies.
Pharmacy Technicians assist the pharmacist by receiving and preparing prescriptions, establishing and maintaining patient profiles, preparing insurance claim forms, and stocking and taking inventory of prescription and over-the-counter medications.
This 60 hour, 10 week Pharmacy Technician Training Program provides you with comprehensive training as follows:
- Drug and Medical Terminology specific to the Hospital Pharmacy environment
- Primary & advanced calculations
- Aseptic procedures
- Drug interactions and mechanisms
- Primary & advanced Non-Sterile Compounding / Sterile Product Compounding
