A Pharmacy Technician is a vital part of the healthcare industry. Classes start September 28th!
Pharmacy technicians are essential members of the healthcare team who ensure that patients receive safe and effective medication therapy.
A pharmacy technician collaborates closely with pharmacists and other medical specialists in a variety of settings, including clinics, hospitals, and neighborhood pharmacies. The tasks and responsibilities of technicians continue to grow and change as they support the pharmacy team’s patient care initiatives.
The Pharmacy Technician program provides instruction in how to assist the pharmacist in the packing and distribution of medication. Graduates can find employment in hospitals (private and government), nursing care facilities, private and chain drug stores, drug manufacturers, wholesale drug houses, and health maintenance organizations. At our pharmacy tech school in Miami, students will also study the professional and technical skills necessary for direct employment as a pharmacy technician.
Students will leave FVI with the knowledge to:
Identify drugs by both generic and brand name.
Calculate (with different measurement systems) the correct dosage and solution strength.
Perform techniques and procedures to compound and mix different drugs.
Define ethics and explain the laws that apply to the practice of pharmacy.
Perform functions that are connected to institutional and clinical distribution systems.
