Program Overview

If you’re ill or injured, you have access to an enormous variety of therapeutic medications, and you trust your pharmacy to correctly interpret and fill your prescriptions. Pharmacy technicians contribute to our safety by assisting pharmacists in a variety of technical tasks. If you’re attentive to detail, organized, a good communicator, and like math, science, and working with people, a career as a pharmacy technician may be your prescription for success.

The Pharmacy Tech program is a shared program with Lakeshore Technical College. You will take some classes at Western and some online or through distance learning from Lakeshore. For more information, click the link below, or contact Western’s Enrollment Services.
