Accredited Certificate Program:

Pharmacy Compounding for the Technician

 Are you looking to take an ACPE Accredited Certificate Program in Pharmacy

on the subject of Compounding for the Pharmacy Technicians?

Medisca Network Inc. in alliance with the University of Florida College of Pharmacy have developed a comprehensive Certificate Program in compounding especially designed for the pharmacy technician.

This is a comprehensive two-part Certificate Program composed of a Self-study Program followed by an intensive two and a half day Live Program.

The Self-study program establishes a knowledge base spanning a broad range of subjects encompassing basics in anatomy and physiology as they apply to sites of administration, routes of delivery and sites of absorption. Key elements of dosage form composition are explored through the concept of ‘Compounding by Chemical Composition’. Topics include a study of excipients, with particular emphasis on vehicles of delivery. Related subjects include Regulatory guidelines, USP/NF laboratory and preparatory procedures and techniques, Standard Operating Procedures and Pharmaceutical calculations. The process of formulation, preparation and presentation of all non-sterile dosage forms round out the Self-study Program, in preparation for a most dynamic, interactive and experiential live program.

The Live program is an evidence-based and problem-based learning experience in non-sterile compounding. Emphasis is placed on the preparation and presentation of solid, semi-solid and liquid dosage forms with a specific focus on blends and mixtures (solutions and dispersions; emulsions and suspensions) for oral, rectal, vaginal, urethral, topical and transdermal routes of delivery. Quality assurance and regulatory compliance in accordance with Federal and State law are emphasized. Further problem-based learning experiences in pharmaceutical calculations strengthen the technician’s abilities in support of the compounding pharmacist.

This Certificate Program in Pharmacy entitled, “The Science of Pharmaceutical Compounding: Technician Training™" is accredited, by the University of Florida College of Pharmacy, for 32 hours of continuing education credit (3.2 CEUs); 12 hours of continuing education credit for its Self-study course (1.2 CEUs) and 20 hours of continuing education credit for its Live course (2.0 CEUs).

The University of Florida College of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.
