    • Pharmacy Technician +

      Program Description

      Pharmacies play a vital role in America's health care industry. They dispense the standardized medications doctors prescribe to treat patients with chronic and acute conditions. They compare and cross-reference prescriptions to help patients avoid potentially dangerous drug interactions. They instruct customers on how to properly take the medications they're prescribed. They also offer advice about the non-prescription, over-the-counter drugs they sell.

      Pharmacies are run by licensed pharmacists who've undergone many years of education and training. But pharmacy assistants often do much of the routine day-to-day work of operating a pharmacy. Also known as pharmacy technicians or pharm techs, pharmacy assistants perform many of the tasks associated with pharmacy operations. Typical responsibilities include:

      -Taking incoming prescription orders
      -Filling prescriptions
      -Instructing customers on the proper use of their prescription medications
      -Processing payments and insurance claims
      -Filling out regulatory paperwork
