Pharmacy Services Management
An associate degree in Pharmacy Services Management may also serve as the stepping stone to a bachelor's degree. If students are committed to the health care field, and are able to organize and prioritize a variety of tasks in a fast paced environment, an associate degree in pharmacy services management may be the ideal degree to earn from Lakeshore Technical College. 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 may be able to 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 real-life situations through increasing store sales, creating efficient operations, improving management practices, or enhancing service to patients. Graduates may 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.
This program aims to prepare students to perform pharmacy technician functions, incorporate professional ethics, laws, regulations, and policies established by the licensing state and regulatory agencies (Pharmacy Examining Board, FDA, DEA), and pursue lifelong professional growth and development through self-directed learning, participation in professional organizations.
