Program Name:
Pharmacy Technician
OUAC Code:
Community Health (Pass) and Pharmacy Technician Diploma (Lambton College)
**New** Articulation agreements have been created to offer a diploma in  Pharmacy Technician with a Bachelor of Arts (Pass) in Community Health.
Program Description:
  • Do you enjoy interacting with the public?
  • Is health an important issue to you?
  • Can you see yourself in a health-related career where there is more to health than just medicine?
  • Do you want work as part of a health care team to ensure that consumers receive the best possible pharmaceutical care?
  • Do you want to work in collaboration with registered pharmacists in retail and institutional settings performing a variety of functions related to the dispensing of prescriptions?

If the answer is YES, then this is the perfect choice for you; earn two post-secondary credentials in just four years! Students enter first year at Brock in the Community Health program, spend years two and three at Lambton College in the Pharmacy Technician diploma program, and return to Brock in the fourth year to complete the Community Health (Pass) degree.

Learn the science and art of promoting health, preventing disease, and improving the health of children, teens and adults in your community, your country, and your world, and become a Dental Hygienist or Pharmacy Technician with the practical skills and knowledge that employers seek.

Gaining both the degree and diploma would ordinarily involve attending college after gaining a university degree, but the articulation agreements combine the two in a single integrated package that can be completed in four years.
