Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy technicians help licensed pharmacists prepare prescription medications, provide customer service and perform administrative duties within a pharmacy setting. Demand for pharmacy technicians is expected to increase by more than 30 percent in the next few years, with numerous job opportunities available.

Jackson College’s new pharmacy technician associate degree program prepares students for positions in either retail pharmacy stores or hospital pharmacies. Coursework will prepare students in medical terminology, health mathematics, interpersonal, written and oral communication, knowledge and accuracy in dispensing and control of drugs, and use of computers.
