Walgreens® Pharmacy Technician Externship

Now is the perfect time to enroll with U.S. Career Institute! We’ve partnered with Walgreens® to provide our Pharmacy Technician students with invaluable Walgreens® Pharmacy Technician Externship opportunities.

Graduates are eligible to take advantage of an 80 hour Walgreens externship. The externship does not have an additional tuition cost, and is available to all graduates who meet the standard requirements. Even though the externship is optional, we encourage our graduates to take advantage of this great resource to get valuable hands-on experience. If you meet the requirements our graduate support team will help you set up the externship in your area! Here are testimonials from two of our students:

“The Walgreens externship was a great opportunity! I received my Arkansas pharmacy technician license and it FEELS SO GREAT to see my name on an official document like that!! I just got hired by a small, local pharmacy this week. So, I am another success story for U.S. Career Institute. Thanks for all your help.”

“Thank you for helping me get placed at Walgreens and checking on me during my externship. I appreciated it so much. The staff at Walgreens were very welcoming and helpful. It was a great experience and, after finishing my externship, I took the PTCB certification exam and passed! After a couple of months of job hunting, I was hired as a pharmacy technician at Target and worked there for about six months. This gave me the experience needed to be considered for the inpatient pharmacy technician job at the hospital that I’ve been wanting for so long. I start part-time as a PT in the hospital pharmacy department next week, and hope to be full-time soon.”
