Advance your career
The Associate Degree in Pharmacy Services prepares individuals to advance their roles as Pharmacy Technicians or to transition into related roles in the work place. Pharmacy Technicians are able to provide a wide range of duties in the pharmacy, and will enhance their technical skills through additional knowledge in third party payment processing and related reimbursement issues, staff scheduling processes, customer service, and enhancing store sales. Marketing, management, and business operations are also introduced in this degree. The program culminates in a capstone course that provides the student with the opportunity to apply their education to a real-life situation through increasing store sales, creating efficient operations, improving management practices, or enhancing service to patients. Graduates will find positions as Senior Pharmacy Technicians, Assistant Store Managers, Trainers, Pharmacy Technician Managers, and many related positions in hospital or retail pharmacies or related organizations.

Competency-Based Education (CBE) is learning at your own pace by mastering competencies through demonstration. It is an academic model in which the time it takes to demonstrate competencies varies, while the expectations about learning are held constant. Students demonstrate mastery through multiple forms of assessment, often at a personalized pace. Once all competencies for this program have been assessed and mastered, students will earn their Technical Diploma.
Being an educator for this program is a passion of mine because I am also a graduate from the program at Lakeshore. I truly understand the importance and need for excellent education and training for pharmacy technicians to prepare them for the workforce.Learn More About This Instructor
