Pharmacy Technician Program Description
Fortis College is proposing to offer an Associate of Science in Pharmacy Technician in Landover, Maryland as an option for students enrolled in its existing Lower Division Certificate in Pharmacy Technician.  The objective of the curriculum is to train and formally educate pharmacy technicians to fulfill the demanding role that requires knowledge, and responsibility.  The curriculum is designed to develop qualified pharmacy technicians who value the pharmacy standards and competently assist the pharmacist in direct patient care.  Students will receive a foundation in pharmacy fundamentals and acquire hands-on practice in multiple pharmacy settings such as hospital, retail, compounding, mail-order and long-term care.
