The DoD Pharmacy Technician Review

Description

The Pharmacy Technician program prepares students to perform both inpatient and outpatient pharmacy operations in both traditional and non-traditional pharmacy practice settings.  The instructional design of this program’s courses is group-lock step. The Pharmacy Technician program is a consolidated program with three military services that has a two-phase field of study schedule. Resident training is first conducted at the Medical Education and Training Campus (METC) and then the student transitions to clinical training that is conducted at military and/or civilian medical treatment facilities. This program provides pharmacy technician graduates with the knowledge, skills, and hands on experiential training needed to achieve pharmacy technician entry-level competencies, and meet basic requirements set forth by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists.  This session discusses what to expect when checking in a newly graduated DoD pharmacy technician.
