Porter Ridge High School's CTE Program will offer a Pharmacy Technician course second semester this year. Health Science Teacher Edwina Baucom will teach the world of Pharmacy Technology second semester. It will be a journey into one of today’s fastest-growing fields in health care.
Pharmacy Technicians are increasingly called on to perform duties traditionally fulfilled by pharmacists. New federal regulations now require pharmacists to spend more time with patients providing patient education. Because of the nature of the pharmacy technician’s work, hands on training is critically important in educational programs like the one being offered at Porter Ridge High School.
For more information on the Pharmacy Technician class, students should see a counselor, Mrs. Gautreaux, or Mrs. Baucom.
