Field of Study:Pharmacy Technician/Assistant
Description:Pharmacy Assistants help licensed Pharmacists provide medication and other health care products to patients. Pharmacy Assistants usually perform routine tasks to help prepare prescribed medication, such as counting tablets and labeling bottles. They also perform administrative duties, such as answering phones, stocking shelves, and operating cash registers. Pharmacy Assistants refer any questions regarding prescriptions, drug information, or health matters to a pharmacist.

In large pharmacies and health-systems, Pharmacy Assistants with significant training, experience and certification can be promoted to supervisory positions, mentoring and training Pharmacy Assistants with less experience. Some may advance into specialty positions such as chemo therapy technician and nuclear Pharmacy Assistant. Others move into sales. This program gives the student the necessary skills to be competitive in this exciting field.
