What Inspired You To Become A Pharmacy Technician?
Posted: July 28, 2016 by June Gudeman
Stephan PangKee has been interested in the pharmacy industry since he was a child. “My grandma had an unfortunate incident, where she was given too much heart medication, which caused a heart attack. That day, I decided I wanted to make sure that never happened to anyone else’s family,” Stephan said.
He decided to enroll at Pima Medical Institute’s Las Vegas campus
, where he studied in the pharmacy technician program. He graduated in 2013 and works at the Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center.
“I chose Pima Medical Institute because I felt their pharmacy technician
program would create a stepping stone and give me the experience I needed to prepare to one day become a pharmacist,” he said. “My experience as a student was excellent; I learned a lot from each instructor and enjoyed every second. All three of my instructors helped me not only become a professional, but become a better person.”
Currently, Stephan is completing Pima Medical’s Health Care Administration
bachelor of science degree online. He is a certified pharmacy technician and also earned his associate degree in Health Care Administration
from Pima Medical. He plans to eventually become a pharmacist.
“I’ve really appreciated Pima Medical, the knowledge I’ve gained, and all the instructors I’ve learned from. I would definitely recommend Pima Medical Institute to others!”
