As our population grows and ages, there is a vital need for trained professionals to provide pharmacy-related assistance. In this program, learners will train to assist pharmacy personnel in addressing and ensuring the health needs of a diverse population. As future professionals working under Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians, students of this program will learn to prepare pharmaceuticals, manage inventory, and as the potential first point of contact, assist customers in a variety of related ways.

Through a combination of theory-based study and hands-on laboratory practice, this program covers pharmacy concepts, pharmaceutical calculations, body systems, pharmaceutical implications, order processing, clerical functions, and professional and communications standards. Following this, students spend the second semester increasing their competency through integrating theoretical knowledge with real dispensing practice and customer service, during a 160-hour practicum based in a community pharmacy.

Hands down a world class experience from a world class institution. I’ve been at sait for 4 years of training and I’m going to miss it with my heart and soul when I am done. My instructors have been the best teachers I’ve ever had. The skills I’ve acquired and the people I’ve met have re defined me as a person. There’s simply nowhere better in western Canada to educate yourself when it comes to the trades. I’m a mechanical trade and the level experience and training provided by the labs, shops and classes given by sait is simply second to none. If you take your education and self improvement seriously, SAIT IS FOR YOU!!!!
