The Purdue University Global Board of Trustees has launched two new programs in partnership with the College of Pharmacy and the Purdue Polytechnic Institute on the West Lafayette campus. Through the collaboration, Purdue Global will offer a pharmacy technician certificate in healthcare quality and patient safety, and associate and bachelor’s degrees in professional flight starting in fall 2019.
The certificate program will be available to students seeking accelerated and standard academic tracks. The program will allow a technician to meet the accreditation guidelines for advanced pharmacy technician credentials recently approved by the American Council on Pharmacy Education.
“Both of these new offerings are stellar examples of how Purdue Global and Purdue West Lafayette can work together to create programs that meet the needs of employers and students while leveraging both institutions’ subject matter expertise,” Purdue Global Chancellor Betty Vandenbosch said in a news release.
