CAREER TYPE

Pharmacy Tech*

Pharmacy technicians assist licensed pharmacists by performing duties that do not require the professional skills and judgments of a board certified pharmacist. These duties include preparing prescriptions, ordering supplies, maintaining patient records and billing, and maintaining inventory. Pharmacy technicians may also be called upon to mix pharmaceutical preparations under the direction and supervision of the pharmacist. They are also responsible for assisting in the care and cleaning of pharmacy equipment. This may include sterilizing bottles, beakers, and other glassware according to prescribed methods. Another important role of a pharmacy technician is to receive and screen prescription drug orders for completeness and accuracy. This increases the need for a pharmacy technician to be able to prepare and distribute medications in a variety of health system settings. They need to have a broad knowledge of pharmacy practice and be able to use pharmaceutical and medical terms, abbreviations, and symbols appropriately.
