    Remington College - Memphis Campus Pharmacy Tech Program Overview

    Our Pharmacy Tech training school in Memphis has two labs specifically designed for simulated pharmacy operations.

    • Lab 131 is used as a simulated outpatient pharmacy. This lab features sample bottles for dispensing as well as some outpatient compounding items. Script Assist software and compounding logs are used in this part of the program. Mock phone calls and customer service skills are practiced as well.
    • Lab 132 is the simulated inpatient pharmacy lab. During this portion of the training, students work with four different types of IV flow hoods, prepare for using sterile products (while they work toward earning their Sterile Products certification), and practice how to manage a 24-hour patient floor stock.

    Pharmacy Technician Training

    As a student in our Memphis Pharmacy Technician program, you'll begin the majority of your hands-on activities in the second half of your diploma program.

    Activities include working in groups of eight in our mock inpatient labs, or working in a group of six to nine in our mock outpatient setting. You'll spend time training in each part of pharmacy lab to get a better idea of what happens in each area of a typical day-to-day pharmacy operation.

    Our program can also help you prepare to become a Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT).

    Products and Equipment

    Our lab equipment includes laminar flow cabinets, more than 240 medicinal samples (placebos), and a variety of compounding products.

    Compounding and Sterile Products are two classes that stand out as favorites to our students. Many students tell us they particularly enjoy the program because of how much compounding they can do and how many different items they can actually make themselves.

    Working with sterile products (intravenous solutions) also holds interest for many, because they can see firsthand how one small vial of medicine (again, a placebo) can be diluted and made into something so effective.
