Seton Pharmacy Technician Program Announces Mentorship Program with Howard University College of Pharmacy

Elizabeth Seton High School is excited to partner with Howard University College of Pharmacy to provide a mentorship program for Seton students to network with Howard Pharmacy students. The goal of the program is to provide support for Seton Pharmacy Technicians throughout their academic journey and afford students the opportunity to learn about the admissions process for and achieve success in a health professional school. To date, twenty-two Seton Pharmacy Technician Program students have signed up to participate in this program, which will last through their senior year.
Elizabeth Seton is the only college preparatory high school in Maryland that is officially approved by the Maryland State Board of Pharmacy for its Pharmacy Technician program. Available to senior students who have completed Seton’s Health Sciences course as a prerequisite, this year-long program provides students with basic knowledge and practices in pharmacology and the roles and responsibilities of a pharmacy technician in both community-based and hospital pharmacies. Students complete 160 hours of work experience as externs with community-based and hospital pharmacies and upon completion of externships, students are eligible to apply for Maryland State licensure as a Pharmacy Technician.
