Pharmacy technicians help patients by preparing the medication they need to feel better. You will have the opportunity to impact people’s lives every day by preparing, counting and labeling their prescriptions, managing insurance billing and options for reimbursement, and assist in meeting their needs in a hospital setting.
Our dedicated Pharmacy Technician labs contain equipment such as: laminar flow hoods, counting trays, ointment slabs, prescription balances, mortars and pestles, and various other learning aids. We also have interactive software to enhance the learning experience.
Additionally, our program includes an externship where you will have the opportunity to act as a pharmacy technician first hand, working closely with patients, pharmacy technicians and other healthcare personnel. Brookline College partners with local pharmacies, hospitals and Fry’s Food Stores Pharmacy(1) and Walgreens Pharmacies to provide you with hands-on work experience.
