Health System Technicians

Dear Pharmacy Technician,

The profession of pharmacy continues to reach new horizons with the development of new technology and medication.  With the evolution of pharmacist's role in today's healthcare, technician roles are also changing.  AAHP members are perfectly poised to help expand healthcare services to many through these new avenues. National certification for pharmacy technicians is quickly becoming the “gold standard” and the expectation.

As an organization, AAHP has accomplished much over the past years. During the last 12 months, technicians were represented on the AAHP Board during quarterly meetings. AAHP Pharmacy Technicians continued the Certification Scholarship program. AAHP pharmacy technicians collaborated with college of pharmacy students to offer national certification sessions for area health system pharmacy technicians and there was specific technician ACPE Continuing Education programming during the annual AAHP Fall Seminar.

Our goals are lofty but attainable with your help.

  • We would like to increase our membership by 50%. When you renew your membership this year, grab a friend and encourage them to join as well.
  • Please join us on Facebook!  AAHP member, Shannon Gallagher, has agreed to be the administrator for the group.
  • We would like to award two technician scholarships this year. If you are not nationally certified, now is a great time to do so. Also, please encourage your co workers to apply.
  • Your commitment to AAHP through membership serves as your voice in shaping the future role of pharmacy technicians in Arkansas. Now, more than ever, your involvement in AAHP shows your investment in our profession. Whether you practice in retail, institutional or hospital pharmacy-AAHP offers membership to all pharmacy technicians regardless of practice setting.
