What do pharmacy technicians do?
Pharmacy technicians work under the direction of a licensed pharmacist to dispense medication and provide information to customers. Pharmacy technicians typically work behind a pharmacy counter at a drugstore, grocery store, hospital, nursing home or other medical facility. This position involves working with pharmacists, patients and occasionally with pharmaceutical reps. CPhT is the abbreviation for Certified Pharmacy Technician. The CPhT works directly under a pharmacist, R.Ph or a PharmD. The CPhT will fill medications along with the pharmacist. They have a large role in the day to day operations of the pharmacy. Students who successfully pass the course are eligible to work at national pharmacies across the U.S. Upon passing their state board exam, the pharmacy technician may also work in hospitals and clinics.
