Medication Safety Spotlight: John Trombly, CPhT

by PTCB | Mar 06, 2018

PTCB Spotlight John Trombley 

“It can be a real struggle for patients to choose between eating and purchasing their medications. One day there was a patient in the pharmacy who was looking at a $1,900 a month copay for his medications. We were fortunate enough to find savings cards that brought his copay to $0.00! Interacting with patients and helping them find ways to make their medications more affordable gives me a great sense of satisfaction.

Becoming a Certified Pharmacy Technician was one of the greatest challenges I've taken on. Throughout my 20-year career in retail and manufacturing management, I was laid off several times. After the last layoff, I decided it was time to do something I’d never done before. I had always enjoyed working with the public and had nearly a decade of service in fire and rescue work. 

Being selected as one of 12 students out of nearly 400 applicants for the Pharmacy Technician Training Program at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center was a real honor. The program was extremely challenging and it readied me to pass the PTCB Certification exam -- the PTCE -- and open a new chapter in my career. It is sponsored by the Institute for American Apprenticeships (IAA) at Vermont HITEC, and the Vermont Department of Labor, along with the Center.

I’m nearing my 2-year anniversary of becoming a pharmacy technician and I love working in the pharmacy. It is rewarding to know that what I do every day makes a difference in someone’s life.”
