Virginia College at Birmingham has entered into a new partnership with Walgreens Pharmacies.  Through the efforts of Dr. Stacy Wright, Program Director for the Pharmacy Technician program at the Birmingham campus of Virginia College, Walgreens Pharmacy has agreed to provide externship opportunities for the school's students.   Dr. Wright recently met with a Walgreens district representative and presented the benefits and details of the school's curriculum.  After the presentation, the Walgreens representative was enthusiastic about the program objectives and the quality of student preparation, including how well the demands of this vital role in the retail pharmacy industry are being met. 

Walgreens will begin providing sites for the students with the next externship group. 

"Both Walgreens and Virginia College are very excited about this new partnership," said Dr. Wright.
