Certified Pharmacy Technicians (CPhT) are important members of Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H)’s patient care team. Our outpatient CPhTs are sometimes the last person our patient sees after a visit to the hospital and our inpatient CPhTs are responsible for getting the medications needed to patients staying in the hospital quickly, accurately and safely.
Up to 12 individuals will be selected for an intensive 9-week education program which is provided at no cost and will prepare participants for the certified pharmacy technician exam (CPhT). Each individual who successfully completes the educational program will be hired by D-H or Cheshire Medical Center/D-H Keene and enrolled in a 2000 hour (one year) US Department of Labor-registered apprenticeship. All positions are full-time and graduates are offered a competitive wage benefit package.
This opportunity could be a great fit if you are:
An Investigator: you are interested in solving a problem, in figuring out how to save a patient money, in learning how equipment works, in understanding a process and how to improve it.
Excited about Technology: would enjoy working with the advanced robotics and informatics that are involved in dosing and dispensing drugs and medicine.
Motivated by Helping People: you gain satisfaction in your work from helping people – whether they are your patients, patient families, pharmacy and clinical colleagues.
A Patient Advocate and Clinical Partner: able to empathize with the stressful life situations that your customers are experiencing and able to put their needs first through empathy, patience and personal resilience.
Honorable: you have a high moral ethic, recognize the significance and importance of your work, and take pride in safeguarding patient prescriptions and doing the right thing.
