Sullivan University’s Pharmacy Technician program is an academic-based program. This program is operated as part of the College of Pharmacy within The Sullivan University System. The Pharmacy Technician program boasts several advantages including pharmacists on faculty, an in-house compounding laboratory, a community and institutional mock pharmacy, and pharmacy and a Drug Information Center. These allow students to spend less time in lecture and more time practicing and working in the pharmacies.
Students will also complete two 100-hour externships to allow them hands-on experience in the field. Each student completes a 100-hour externship at a community pharmacy and a 100-hour externship at an institutional setting (hospital or long-term care facility). We have contracts with over 40 different pharmacies in the area so students have a wide-range of facilities they may work in with their externship.
As part of the Sullivan University College of Pharmacy, Pharmacy Technician students are provided all necessary resources associated with their training. The Sullivan University Pharmacy Technician diploma program received accreditation by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) on August 5, 2009. Our mission is to train students to provide outstanding, ethical and empathetic pharmacy care; to serve the health care needs of the community and the individual patient; to expand the scope of practice of pharmacy technicians in community settings, hospitals, managed care facilities and government agencies; and to be compassionate patient advocates and leaders in their communities.
