About the Certificate

Certificate III: Community Pharmacy Practice and Management is the third certificate in the PharmTechX Program offered by the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy. In this certificate, technicians will explore the principles of outpatient pharmacy management and will apply the steps of process improvement and project management to the incorporation of new clinical services, including medication therapy management, vaccination screening and administration, and point-of-care testing. Technicians are introduced to non-sterile compounding, the associated regulations, and the advanced calculations necessary to prepare the prescribed dose. Technicians will continue to grow as leaders and managers through the customer service and human resource management modules. This certificate prepares technicians for the roles needed to advance not just their career but to also advance community pharmacy practice.

This certificate offers 15 hours of ACPE accredited continuing education and utilizes an interactive, online learning platform allowing technicians to gain immediate access to all of the course materials once enrolled in the program, which they can complete at their own pace.
