Open up to a wide range of career opportunities through our pharmacy technician courses

Managing the release of prescription medications is a serious business. It requires a commitment to detail and a highly specialized set of technical and interpersonal skills. If you're excited by the opportunity to work on a team that provides much-needed support to those most in need, the Pharmacy Technician program will give you the skills necessary to achieve professional success.

You'll begin the program by developing a wealth of knowledge in pharmaceutical and self-care products; pharmacy business concepts and institutional procedures. You'll learn to safely and efficiently prepare non-sterile and sterile products, by working in Fanshawe's state-of-the-art pharmacy lab, through classroom instruction and by participating in various field placement opportunities. You'll learn how to write for the Health Sciences while studying anatomy and pharmaceutical mathematics.

As a Pharmacy Technician, you'll work collaboratively with a pharmacist to safely and accurately process, prepare and release prescription medications. And when you graduate, a wide range of career opportunities await you, including positions in community, hospital and institutional pharmacies; compounding pharmacies; home health care divisions/companies; pharmaceutical distribution wholesalers; pharmacy application software companies; and pharmacy benefits administration.
