Hi, I am a Junior in HS and strongly considering a career in pharmacy so I have been intrigued about the Career Explorers Program that Midwestern College of Pharmacy (Downers Grove, IL) offers over the Summer. In summary, it is a 6 week program M-F 6-8 hours each day. About half the time you spend in a classroom learning basic pharm tech things and the other half you spend working in a walgreens or Osco Drug and you get paid $1200 in the end. I'm not doing it for the money or anything, just the experience so that I can be certain that this could be what I want to do in my future. Which is why I want to do it the summer of my Jr. year and not my Sr. year because by next year I will have already decided where to go and what to major in . But the only reason I am hesitant is that it seems like a big committment and pretty much will take up my entire summer. Has anyone out there done such a program, I am pretty sure that there are similar programs in different states. Just looking for some feedback and comments...thanks!
