Pharmacy Technician Studies - DT425

This programme prepares students for a profession as a Pharmacy Technician in either a hospital or community pharmacy. It develops practical, professional and academic skills required to assist in the various activities of the pharmacy, not requiring the professional judgement of the pharmacist.

Students will gain experience in dispensing procedures and practices and be able to interpret prescriptions and prepare medicines for dispensing. They will be able to maintain patient records and operate pharmacy computer systems. They will also be able to supply non-prescription medicines in accordance with legislation and guidelines.

Furthermore, central to the philosophy of the course is that graduates will have a theoretical and practical training in basic sciences, including biology, chemistry, microbiology, maths, and pharmacology. These subjects support the pharmacy technician profession, and also provide a pathway to higher qualifications, including BSc Pharmacy.
