The Community Pharmacy Assistant program prepares an individual in collaboration with a pharmacist and a pharmacy technician registered by the Ontario College of Pharmacists to dispense, sell and compound medications; manage inventory; interact with patients and other health care providers and assist in the provision of medication therapy management and pharmacy services.

Students will learn concepts and problem solving strategies in the classroom that are later reinforced during lab components in Fanshawe’s state-of-the-art pharmacy lab and a community placement. Students also gain the skills to collaborate with other pharmacy health care professionals to ensure accurate patient record maintenance, process prescriptions, manage inventory, compound non-sterile products and assist customers with products sold in a community pharmacy.

What You’ll Learn

  • Comply with all legislation governing pharmacy practice while adhering to established ethical standards and practices.
  • Assist the pharmacist and/or pharmacy technician in dispensing, packaging and labelling of prescription products ensuring precision and accuracy.
  • Discuss commonly encountered medical conditions and the basic pharmacologic drug classes which pertain to these conditions using appropriate medical language, pharmacological naming, terminology and non-proprietary/proprietary drug names.
  • Compound non-sterile pharmaceutical products according to current standards, policies and guidelines.
  • Perform data base entry, third party plan adjudication, inventory control, marketing plan implementation and cash handling processes.
  • Effectively communicate and collaborate with patients, pharmacy team members, care providers and other health professionals in provision of excellent customer service.
  • Recognize and refer instances requiring pharmacist intervention and pharmacy technician verification.

As a university graduate, the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe was an incredibly welcome change of pace. It’s allowed me to focus on the hands-on aspect of filmmaking that I did not have the chance to learn while in University. The shift from reading theories and essay writing to producing content and connecting with my fellow filmmakers was exactly what I needed.

The environment of AFM is a lot more intimate than the university experience. You are always working in groups to create projects and receiving constant feedback from the professors. If you want to learn the ins and outs making a film, and meet the people who are going to help you do it, there is no better place to go than Fanshawe’s Advanced Filmmaking program.

I did film at Fanshawe and it delivered what it promised. Some of my instructors were awesome while others were so-so. I grew up in London and stayed close to home but realized after I was in the program that there are other schools in Toronto that have a better reputation. Also people talk about Fanshawe's "slacker vibe", but you don't have to fall into that trap. You can find slackers at every school. In the end, I have a stable job in my field and I live in Toronto. So no regrets, but make sure you put in the work and start networking from Day One.
