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.
A pharmacy technician is on the cutting edge of the healthcare process. You will review prescriptions for accuracy and help licensed pharmacists in filling them, primarily in hospital and retail settings. Other opportunities exist in long-term care, mail-order businesses, pharmaceutical research, and even in education. People depend on the all-important work of pharmacy technicians everywhere, every day.
