Pharmacy Technicians are health care professionals who have been trained to assist pharmacists to dispense prescription medication. Depending on the position, the technician may also manage third-party billing, answer telephones, direct customers to items or to the pharmacist for medication consultation, receive written prescriptions, clean and sterilize dispensing bottles and instruments, answer questions regarding non-drug products, and operate a cash register.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment for Pharmacy Technicians is projected to grow 9% through 2024 due to an increased demand for prescription medications and subsequent increase in the need for pharmaceutical services.
