National Pharmacy Technician Day
Ogeechee Technical College

National Pharmacy Technician Day is October 18, 2016. Pharmacy technicians play an important role in the healthcare system. They assist pharmacists with dispensing medications, compounding sterile and non-sterile products, and educating patients. Graduates of Ogeechee Technical College’s Pharmacy Technology diploma program are prepared to take the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination to become a Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT).  Certified Pharmacy Technicians have a number of different career paths such as retail or hospital pharmacy technician, Chemo IV Prep Technician, Sterile Medication IV Technician, working with DME (durable medical equipment) distribution, working with Prescription Drug wholesale companies, and many more options.  These graduates can go on to obtain other certifications to specialize in certain areas of pharmacy.

Stop by the library to visit the display created by Ogeechee Tech Pharmacy Technology students and faculty to celebrate and promote their profession.
