The Pharmacy Technician major combines a foundation in medical administration with a thorough understanding of computer applications, and groundwork in accounting. This combination is designed to prepare the student for employment in pharmacies helping licensed pharmacists provide medication and other pharmacy products to patients, including assistance in the preparation of the medication. Pharmacy technicians work closely with pharmacy aides who handle more routine pharmacy tasks, such as answering pharmacy telephones, and general pharmacy and medical office administration. Students will gain a comprehensive understanding of pharmaceutical terminology, pharmacy calculations, pharmacy record keeping, pharmaceutical techniques, and pharmacy law and ethics. Pharmacy technicians also receive training in medication names, uses, and doses.
