Pharmacy Technician Program

The Pharmacy Technician Program combines classroom instruction with practical experience through externships in both institutional and retail settings. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment in this field will increase much faster than average over the next several years. As a pharmacy technician, you will assist licensed pharmacists providing medication and other health care products to patients. As a pharmacy technician, you may work in a hospital, home infusion pharmacy, community (retail) pharmacy, pharmacy benefit manager, nursing home, pharmaceutical organization and other health care settings. In institutional practice, pharmacy technicians prepare a variety of medications, fill medication orders and make the rounds delivering medications to various patient care areas. In the retail setting, technicians take information from customers and health professionals in order to fill prescriptions, measure and compound medications, manage inventories, accept payment and process insurance claims. Lehman’s program will prepare you for this exciting career and, after completion of the required courses, students will be eligible to take the Pharmacy Technician Certifcation Board (PTCB) credentialing examination.
