Latest news from the Pharmacy Technician Faculty
We are pleased to announce a pilot project that was recently completed to address the need for interprofessional education within our Pharmacy Technician Program. We now offer ALL students an opportunity to gain experience working in a simulated community pharmacy environment with 1st and 2nd year University of Manitoba pharmacy students. This exercise provides our students with the opportunity to practice and develop skills that will be utilized in practicums and practice environments. The goal is to incorporate what the students have learned in the classroom and to be able to apply that learning to real life experiences in a community pharmacy. To view the results of the interprofessional pilot project that was completed in April of 2014,
Our Pharmacy Technician program will teach you how to:
Skillfully prepare medication inventories and compound medications
Calculate and determine proper dosages and dispense medications
Properly label and fill prescriptions
