Pharmacy Technician Program Adds Safeway as Community Partner

Elizabeth Seton High School is proud to announce that Safeway Pharmacies, a subsidiary of the Albertsons Companies, Inc. has agreed to partner with our Pharmacy Technician Program as a site for our Pharmacy Technician students to complete their experiential hours at locations in the Metro DC area. This partnership affirms the commitment of Elizabeth Seton High School and its community partners such as Safeway to continue to provide the highest quality opportunities in the growing fields of pharmaceutical sciences and pharmacy practice.

The Pharmacy Technician Program provides students in their Senior year with basic knowledge and practices in pharmacology and the roles and responsibilities of a pharmacy technician in both community-based and hospital pharmacies. Students who complete the course and pass the Board of Pharmacy approved final examination are offered organizational placements to complete 160 hours of work experience in both community-based and hospital-based pharmacies located in Prince George’s County, Montgomery County, Anne Arundel County, Calvert County, Charles County and Washington, DC. To date, Safeway joins our expansive list of partners that include Walgreens, CVS, Weis and Kaiser. Upon completion of their internship work experience requirements, students may apply for Maryland State certification as a Pharmacy Technician. Seton Pharmacy Technician program students are also eligible to apply for a Technician License in the District, where it has also achieved approval as a recognized program. Click here to learn more.
