Pharmacy Technicians- "Jobs In Great Demand"

PharmacyTech Certified

Your career in the medical field means you can usually count on a steady job, thanks to the number of medical jobs available now or becoming available in the near future. It also means that, thanks to advances in technology, you have to be committed to your education if you want to advance your career.

Pharmacy technician tech jobs are expected to grow 20 percent by 2022. This is attributed to the fact that Baby Boomers will need more medication as they age, as well as a prevalence of chronic diseases that require medicine, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports.

This growing occupation needs more than experience to succeed, though. Pharm tech certification is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

 As a CPhT, you may perform some or all of the following tasks:


·    Receive written prescription requests from patients, and prescriptions sent electronically from doctors’ offices

·       In some states, you may process physicians’ orders by phone

·       Establish and maintain patient profiles

·       Prepare insurance claim forms and manage inventory

Pharmacy technicians work in department stores, grocery stores and general merchandise stores, but the majority work at pharmacies, drug stores and hospitals. Unlike pharmacists, pharmacy technicians are not the sole dispensers of medication. They mostly assist in measuring, mixing, counting and labeling dosages of medications.
