The pharmacy technician will work in collaboration with registered pharmacists in retail and institutional settings, works with professional and other paramedical personnel, and performs a variety of functions related to the dispensing of prescriptions. Duties in a retail pharmacy include inventory control, filling prescriptions on the computer, counting and packaging. Pharmacy technicians also do third party billing. In a hospital or institutional setting, they will work in collaboration with pharmacists and prepare intravenous solutions for patients.
This program will appeal to students who have a sense of responsibility and are extremely accurate in their work habits, paying attention to detail. They must also be able to work both independently and as a team member, with the ability to take initiative within the limits of their position. Good customer relations are also important.
