Pharmacy Technician

As the number of middle-aged and elderly people increases in the United States, so does the expected demand for skilled pharmacy technicians.

Pharmacy technicians work under the supervision of licensed pharmacists in many different types of retail locations, as well as hospitals.2 The scope of work for pharmacy technicians is constantly broadening. They mix and measure medication, maintain patient profiles, and handle insurance claims as well as receive prescriptions and take inventory.1

But maybe the most important part of a pharmacy technician’s job is helping patients. As a Remington College instructor puts it, pharmacy technicians have “a direct link to making someone well.”
