A 100% Video Course and Study Guide on Medical Math and Pharmacy Math for practicing pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pharmacy students preparing to take board exams or certification exams.  Nursing students, Vet Tech, Veterinary Assistant, MA, PTA, OTA students and other allied medical professionals and students may also benefit from this Medical Math video course.

With my goal to help lessen medication errors (caused by wrong calculations) in the healthcare industry, I would like to share my recorded Pharmacy Math classes that have helped hundreds of pharmacy, medical, and paramedical students.  In this video course, you will learn:

How to avoid anxiety from number word problems

* How to analyze word problems -- which numbers are necessary in solving the problem and which ones are not

How to master percentages, alligation, dilution, dosage calculation 

* How to avoid calculation errors that may cost a patient's life

How to avoid getting your license revoked 

I will also throw in these BONUSES to help you not only master math but also your other major classes like Pharmacology:

Drugs: Made Ridiculously Easy To Memorize ebook 

Most Commonly Used Medical Abbreviations ebook

* Top 250 Drugs List

TJC's DO NOT USE Abbreviations ebook

To Your Success and to a Better Healthcare and Patient Care,

Lorraine Lohner, MBA, BS Pharm

P.S.  Students of this in-class course paid tens of thousands of dollars to attend my program but, I am letting you be a fly on the wall and take the class without physically being in my classroom for a very tiny fraction of the cost just because I want you to master math before you become part of the medical field or for a better patient care you provide.

P.P.S. - All my students have great successes taking this program but, don't just take my word for it... take a look at the testimonials of former students in the video above.

Prof. Lohner is one of Las Vegas' Top 100 Women of 2016; a retired pharmacist who now fully devotes her time to her family and improving the education system. She is a pharmacy professor for a university, a state college and a medical institute. She is a clinical instructor for pharmacy and pharmacy technician students doing their internship and externship in retail, hospital and specialty or closed-door pharmacies.

Prof. Lohner authored many curricula, including a curriculum for Pharmacy Programs for Career Technical Education (High School) commissioned by the Department of Education, as her contribution to improving our high school education system.

Students of Prof. Lohner tirelessly talk about how great she is as a teacher and how much knowledge they acquired from her that helped them in their careers and in landing a job. Prof. Lohner and her students boast of a 100% pass rate on the PTCE (PTCB) and a 100% placement for jobs after graduation. According to most of her students, she is a professor who truly cares and would go out on a limb to help her students get a job in the pharmacy field.

Part of Prof. Lohner's experience includes a combined 19 years of work in retail, hospital and multinational pharmaceutical companies. Her experience working in and with multinational companies allowed her to travel the world and got her interested in other non-traditional areas of pharmacy such as, homeopathy, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and cosmetics formulation, health and wellness, and natural skin care.

She runs classes at community colleges teaching how to make natural cosmetics and skin care products and helps students turn this hobby into a business. She regularly gets invited to speak in symposia and live radio shows.

Another interesting fact about her, she became a pharmacist at an early age of 20 and she loves heels (most pharmacists wear flats but, not her!). So, let's call her, pharmacist-in-heels.
