What does a pharmacy technician do? One of the primary responsibilities of a pharmacy technician is to work closely with a pharmacist to guarantee the health and safety of the patients who visit the pharmacy. They identify, distribute, pack, and label a patient’s prescription medication, which is subsequently verified by a pharmacist for correctness before being administered to the patient.
What is the difference between a pharmacy technician and a pharmacist?
The educational qualifications, following work duties, and degrees of seniority that are necessary to become a Pharmacist are significantly higher than those that are necessary to become a Pharmacy Technician. For instance, Pharmacists are normally required to complete a Doctor of Pharmacy degree prior to taking and passing a license test and finishing a residency program.
