The Role of a Pharmacy Technician in NYC
A Pharmacy Technician is a crucial member of a pharmacy staff. Aside from a Pharmacy Tech’s regular duties, such as dispensing prescription medicines and other health care products, responsibilities of the job will include working with doctors’ offices and insurance companies while assisting in the running of a pharmacy department. Additionally, Pharma
cy Techs learn the details of patient care delivery systems and medication distribution.
Currently, almost two-thirds of all prescription drugs in the United States are dispensed by retail pharmacies and there is currently a shortage of pharmacists. This means that there is a huge demand for Pharmacy Technicians to pick up the slack, which leads to increased responsibilities and increased pay for the most qualified technicians.
Your Pharmacy Technician Training Begins at ABC
