A pharmacy technician is a health care provider who performs pharmacy-related functions under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist. Pharmacy technicians work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, community pharmacies, and other health care agencies.
The Pharmacy Technician program was developed using accreditation standards of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Students will have a working knowledge of standards of practice, quality assurance, patient confidentiality, and communication skills needed in a professional environment. The program is accredited through ASHP/ACPE and is the only accredited pharmacy technician program in Oregon east of the Cascades.
