One of the main duties of this profession is helping pharmacists with giving out and dispensing medication. Being a Pharmacy Technician requires a lot of precision and attention to detail. Responsibilities may also include helping with measuring, mixing, counting, and labeling the dosages of medications.
A Pharmacy Technician maintains patient records and insurance information and makes sure that medications are properly filled within a certain time frame. Pharmacy Technicians mostly work in hospitals, drug stores, and pharmacies, but they can also be found working in department stores and grocery stores.
Pharmacy Technicians work under the supervision of a pharmacist to supply medicines to patients, whether via prescription or over the counter. They are responsible for filling the prescriptions based on the written directions of the doctor and under the guidance of the pharmacist. They may also assist in managing medical supplies and conducting inventories.
