The ASA College Pharmacy Technology Associate of Occupational Studies Degree Program in New York City prepares students to support pharmacists in a variety of pharmacy-related duties. It integrates theory and practice, combining classroom lectures in all areas of pharmacy technology with hands-on learning in dedicated pharmacy laboratories and field experience through a comprehensive externship program. Each student will complete 90 experiential hours in both a community and hospital setting for a total of 180 hours.

  • Successfully pass the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination.
