Pharmacy Technician Duties
A pharmacy technician is responsible for collaborating with pharmacists to help prepare and dispense prescription medications accurately and efficiently. The primary goal of a pharmacy technician is to make sure that operations behind the counter run smoothly. A pharmacy tech may be asked to take prescriptions both over the phone and in person, as well as via automated computer system. They will work with both customers and physicians to ensure that a proper prescription is given to suit each patient’s needs. On a day-to-day basis, the pharmacy technician will largely be responsible for mixing medicines, measuring the correct amount of medication to give, counting pills, labeling prescriptions and writing instructions for the administration and usage of the medicine. A pharmacy tech might also be asked to help take payments and ensure that the retail functions of the pharmacy run smoothly. A pharmacy technician must be a good consultant, with the ability to give good recommendations and communicate with other members of the staff.
Pharmacy Technician Education Requirements
Pharmacy technician education requirements are of a much lower threshold than pharmacists or pharmacy managers, making it easier to start in the pharmacy industry through this path.

After the base requirements are achieved, a pharmacy technician can expect to have most of their training done on the job. There are associate degrees that a pharmacy technician can also acquire to keep them ahead of their competition.
