What Does a Pharmacy Technician Do? How Can I Become One?
A pharmacy technician is a professional tasked with entering, filling, and selling prescription medications to patients. A pharmacy tech will work side by side with a licensed pharmacist who will verify all medications filled and consult with patients directly about their medications, as technicians are not licensed to give medical or pharmaceutical advice. Technicians may also be asked to perform basic pharmacy organization and management tasks, such as taking inventory, restocking shelves, performing general cleaning, etc.
Although a pharmacy technician does not require the same education and credentials as a doctor or pharmacist, there is still specialized training necessary to become a certified pharmacy technician in a competitive job market. Good pharmacy technician programs in NYC like the one offered by ABC Training Center will help you become familiar with dosage calculations, prescription terminology/shorthand, common drug names/uses, and more.
