This program is designed to prepare interested students to pursue a career path supporting licensed pharmacists by performing tasks such as assisting with counter dispensing operations and prescription preparation. In a retail pharmacy, technicians may stock and inventory prescriptive and over-the-counter medications, maintain written or computerized patient medication records, count or pour medications into dispensing containers, and manage the cash register.

In hospitals, pharmacy technicians may perform many of the same duties as they do in retail pharmacy, but they may have additional responsibilities including: assembling a twenty-four hour supply of medication for each patient, repackaging medications, preparing commercially-unavailable medications, and delivering medications to patient rooms.
