Pharmacy technicians work under the supervision of a pharmacist, performing the duties necessary to keep a pharmacy running. While becoming a pharmacist can require years of schooling, training to be a pharmacy technician takes only a few months. In the normal course of their day, pharmacy technicians will fill prescriptions, communicating with doctors or patients to ensure that the right medicine goes to the right person. They will also mix compounds,.
Carefully measuring out precise quantities for blended ointments or creams. Managing inventory, processing insurance claims, cashiering, and taking calls also fall into a technician's daily responsibilities. By performing these essential but routine tasks, pharmacy technicians free up pharmacists to concentrate on other vital duties. The majority of pharmacy technicians work in drugstores, but there are also job possibilities in hospitals and increasingly in grocery or department stores.
