Pharmacy Technician

The Pharmacy Technology Program at Amarillo College can be completed in just one year. Yet graduates will have gained valuable hands-on experience on one of the most up-to-date medication-dispensing systems used in the industry today: the Pyxis MedStation 4000. High-tech equipment, however, is just of the many reasons the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists granted this AC program the highest achievable accreditation: AC has a long history of producing the sort of well-trained professionals area employers seek.
