Pharmacy Technician Program

Group-based learning, interactive teaching, and externship sites prepare the student to apply their knowledge with compassion and caring for those we serve. The classes are all done online, in which video lectures and PowerPoint materials are reviewed at home, while chat time is reserved for discussion, workshops, and collaborative activities.
