Our certificate programs are for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, nurses and all persons involved in compounding. We offer comprehensive practice-based continuing education courses designed to provide both classroom and hands-on training. Participants develop the knowledge and skills necessary to compound sterile preparations safely and effectively. The courses provide practical experience that will assist the participant in evaluating their current sterile compounding practice and implementing changes necessary to meet USP standards.
The Center for Compounding Practice and Research (CCPR) at VCU School of Pharmacy has an interactive, learner-centered instructional lab and a state-of-the-art cleanroom for aseptic processing. Our sterile compounding facility designed according to USP <797> standards allows participants to demonstrate hands-on simulation using current technology. The lab can accommodate 24 participants.
