The Pharmacy Assistant Program at MTI will prepare you for an exciting career as a Pharmacy Assistant in a community pharmacy, hospital, internet pharmacy or in a pharmaceutical distribution company.
Our small classes lead to an individualized approach to your success. You will be taught by experienced, highly qualified instructors. Your instructors all still work in the field outside of MTI in order to remain current, and provide you with the most up to date techniques available in the industry.
You will be trained to read and dispense prescriptions, prepare compounds, use pharmacy computer software (Zadall), prepare intravenous admixtures, order pharmaceuticals, maintain inventory and do calculations relating to the pharmacy. You will also learn about pharmacy laws, Pharmacare and medical terms as well as being informed about herbal and other forms of alternative medicines.
This hands on program finishes with a four week practicum in a pharmacy setting, followed by career preparation where we will help you with your resume and assist you to find employment as a Pharmacy Assistant. We know our program will work for you as it did for the 93.87% of MTI grads that got employed last year.
