As a Pharmacy Technician you can be at the front line of healthcare- preparing and delivering medications and supporting pharmacists to provide care to our patients.

Since 2019, the Pharmacy Technician Training Program at Baptist Health South Florida has partnered with our inpatient and outpatient pharmacies to provide participants with online education modules, on-site group simulations, and experiential on-site education. This 10-week, full-time (400 hours) course combines online learning with on-site practical experience at our Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach facilities.
