Pharmacy Technician (CPhT)

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that more than 4.7 million new health care jobs will be created by 2014, and the increasing demand for health care services is expected to continue for 50 years. That means there has never been a better time to enroll at Mid-South Community College to pursue a career as a pharmacy technician.



MSCC’s Pharmacy Technology program is designed in accordance with the standards of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists and prepares you for the opportunity to earn a technical certificate in three semesters and learn the skills and knowledge needed to pass the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam.

Pharmacy technicians work under the direct supervision of a licensed pharmacist and perform many important tasks. Pharmacy techs work in a wide variety of practice settings, including community pharmacies, hospitals, the military, in-home health care settings, long term care facilities, mail service pharmacies, managed health care organizations, and educational programs.
