Topics include: Orientation of Technician duties, Medical Terminology, Introduction to Institutional Pharmacy Practice, Introduction to Community/Ambulatory Pharmacy Practice and Pharmacy Calculations. Students taking this course should have basic reading comprehension skills and high school algebra. PHR120-E Pharmacology for Pharmacy Technician 3 This course is designed to introduce the student to the basic concept of pharmacology as well as the biological factors affecting the actions of drugs for each pharmacological classification. This course is designed for the pharmacy technician and is the second of three courses in the Pharmacy Technician Certificate program. The course is also appropriate to update the knowledge of health care professionals who participate in the delivery of medications in a variety of settings. Prerequisite: PHR105-E PHR941-E Pharmacy Technician Practicum 1 This course will expose the student to the pharmacy environment. It will give the student hands on experience with the computer skills required to fill prescriptions in a pharmacy setting. It will expose the students to the equipment normally found in the pharmacy. The student will learn how to correctly measure and weigh out pharmaceutical ingredients used in extemporaneously compounding prescriptions using pharmacy graduates and Class A and electronic balances. They will use their knowledge of pharmacy math in making calculations to assist in these procedures. The student will use the pharmacy lab to simulate the prescription filling process. They will receive the prescription from a patient, input the information into the computer, pull the drugs from the inventory, count or measure the ingredients and label the container. They will become familiar with the reference materials available in a pharmacy and how to use them to obtain various drug information. Then after completing the lab work successfully, they will spend 40 hours in a community or institutional pharmacy, completing a check-list of duties that are normally performed by a technician. _P_H__Y__S_I_C__A__L_ _S_C__I_E__N__C__E______________________________ PHS110-A Introduction to Physical Science 3 Physical Science is an introductory course intended for nonscience majors in which the five areas of physical science are explored: physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, and meteorology.
