Hear from recent Pharmacy Technician Students!
The Pharmacy Technician Program is a one-year certification program that prepares you for employment in a variety of healthcare environments such as hospitals, pharmacies, and nursing homes. Plus, this is the only accredited program in northern Michigan!
“Taking a leap of faith and joining the Pharmacy Technician Program through Mid was easily one of the best decisions I have made. Mid supplied so many practical tools and real-life experiences for me to get a taste of what the pharmacy industry was all about in the real world. Ashley and Nicole helped me improve my self-confidence and excel by providing hands-on training in scenarios that I could then take with me to my career. 10/10 recommend for anyone curious about the world of pharmacy.” -Rylee
"I completed Mid's Pharmacy Technician Program in 2014-2015. All of my courses were in person, with the clinical semester during the summer months. I felt like the program really helped get me ready for clinical rotation. The retail and hospital courses have lab times which are great for hands-on learners. During the clinical rotations, I saw firsthand what working in a retail or hospital pharmacy was like. After I completed the program, I was offered a position working in a hospital pharmacy and I absolutely love it!" - Emily
"This program provided me with the background knowledge that I needed to be able to do what was expected of me when I completed my training in clinical settings. The pharmacy that you are interning at treats you like a potential employee, and they watch every move to see if you have what it takes to become one of their team members. I felt very well prepared, and it showed because I was offered a job at both of my clinical locations. I have now been employed there for 3 years. I also felt prepared to be able to take my boards for my national license. In clinical settings, you learn quite a bit of different things. Retail you learn the basics of helping patients by filling their prescriptions. Along with learning how to maintain the inventory and how fast-paced the setting is. Hospital is a whole different setting The one that I attended, I learned how to set up the Omnicell’s for the nurses along with the bags for the EMTs to make sure they were all set up for when the ambulance was out called on emergency runs.Overall, I feel that if I did not complete this program I would not be where I am today." - Ashley
