Pharmacy Technician Program graduates: Where are they now?
Our learners come from a variety of backgrounds. You don’t need a medical background or experience in health care to become a pharmacy technician. If you are passionate about helping people and love interacting with patients, but aren’t interested in clinical work, becoming a pharmacy technician could be a wonderful career option. It's one of the few health care professions that works with patients, but does not work with procedures or direct patient care.

Advancement opportunities for a pharmacy technician
With additional experience and training, pharmacy technicians can advance into supervisory roles. Pharmacy technicians may also advance by moving into specialty roles such as hazardous compounding, specialty pharmacy, compounding, education, and research. With a substantial amount of formal education and training, some technicians go on to become pharmacists later in their careers.
