Pharmacy Technician Program

The program is designed to prepare you for a career as a pharmacy technician in hospital, retail, mail-order pharmacies and other pharmacy related industries.

You will receive classroom, laboratory and practical experience covering all aspects of the profession. Included within the laboratory portions of the program is a 45-hour content-specific block of instruction dealing with the preparation of sterile intravenous products. This content-specific block, and documented experiential site sterile compounding training hours, may then be used in satisfying the New Mexico statute 61-11-11.1 training requirements for pharmacy technicians who compound sterile preparations. The Pharmacy Technician Program is accredited by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).
