Pharmacy technicians are an integral part of the health care team, and The Society for the Education of Pharmacy Technicians (SEPhT) provides resources for training of pharmacy technicians. We promote the profession for providing educators with curriculum, supplies, simulation, equipment, and consulting to include start up and lab build out services.
Today’s pharmacy requires proper training to ensure the safest patient care and technicians must meet these standards prior to entering the workforce. SEPhT works closely with partners, such as KbPort to provide products and services to train and meet the needs of employers today.
SEPhT is guided by Karen Davis, an educator with over 36 years practice in field, who provides valuable knowledge and leadership for today’s pharmacy profession. Her experience includes authorship of texts, accreditation consulting, curriculum development, and simulation products, software, and dispensing equipment.
