The Associate in Science degree in Pharmacy Management and the Applied Technology Diploma (ATD) in Pharmacy Technician are accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)/Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).



The Associate in Science (A.S.) degree in Pharmacy Management expands on the curriculum of the Pharmacy Technician Applied Technology Diploma to prepare students for careers as Pharmacy Technician Specialists. Students can enroll directly into the A.S. degree program or transition from the Pharmacy Technician ATD program.
Upon successful completion of the program, graduates earn an Associate in Science degree and are equipped to assume entry-level management responsibilities in a pharmacy. Graduates are prepared for employment in hospitals, long term care facilities, retail stores, drug manufacturing companies, wholesale drug houses and health maintenance organizations.

Pharmacy Technicians

Work under the supervision and direction of a registered pharmacist. They must maintain good organizational skills in an environment where keeping things neat and organized is essential for patient safety. Technicians receive and store incoming supplies, and maintain proper storage and security conditions for drugs. They answer telephones, responding to questions or requests, and help customers by answering simple questions or referring them to the pharmacist. They receive written prescription or refill requests and verify the information. They file prescriptions that have been filled and establish and maintain patient profiles, including lists of medications taken by individual patients. In institutional settings, responsibilities can also compounding medications, compounding intravenous fluids for injection, and specialized patient treatments under the direct supervision of a pharmacist. Pharmacy technicians can also assist the pharmacist by reviewing current medications with patients and clarifying how the patients are taking medications at home to streamline the pharmacist’s consultation with the patient.
