A pharmacy technician plays a central role in the smooth operation of today’s pharmacy, by supporting and assisting the pharmacist in their various activities. Pharmacy technicians are employed in both the private sector in community and private hospital pharmacies and by the HSE in hospital pharmacies.
The main aim of this course is to provide you with the appropriate multi-disciplined skills and theory to enable you to play a key role in both community and hospital pharmacies. In addition to lectures, the course contains a strong practical element and you spend ten weeks of placement each year in a community or hospital pharmacy. This placement is organised by AIT and is deemed to be enormously beneficial to your employment prospects.
