Prepare for a Pharmacy Technician Career

A pharmacy technician job involves helping a licensed pharmacist fill prescriptions. But a qualified pharmacy tech needs to know much more than how to count medication.

The job role has a wide range of responsibilities. 

Duties include collecting information needed to fill a prescription, packaging and labeling prescriptions and coordinating and taking payment for prescriptions.

In some states, technicians are permitted to mix medications or get prescription refill authorizations from doctors.

In addition to these tasks, pharmacy technicians are responsible for:

  • Processing insurance claims
  • Answering customer phone calls
  • Organizing inventory
  • Referring customers to a pharmacist to answer questions
