Begin a career where you play a critical role in contributing to patient care as a pharmacy technician.
Graduates of the Humber College ’s Pharmacy Technician diploma program are in demand and have numerous opportunities to contribute to the health and well-being of Canadians. The need for pharmacy technicians remains strong, with an aging population that require more medications, and retirements of existing workers.
Pharmacy technicians perform many tasks including filling and final release of prescriptions, medication reconciliation, compounding medications and managing day-to-day operations. Pursue opportunities in various settings such as community/retail and hospital pharmacies, long-term care facilities, pharmaceutical manufacturers, third-party insurance companies, computer software companies and government agencies.
