What Does a Pharmacy Technician Do?
A pharmacy technician is responsible for assisting pharmacists in providing medications and other healthcare products to patients.

Pharmacy technicians also help to keep track of inventory and order supplies.
Most states require that pharmacy technicians have a high school diploma or equivalent. Many employers require that pharmacy technicians have additional certifications and training. Many pharmacy technician programs are available online and at community colleges. These programs typically include courses in medical terminology, pharmacy law, and pharmaceutical calculations. Many employers also require that pharmacy technicians have experience working in a pharmacy setting.
