Unitek College Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy technicians assist & support licensed pharmacists in providing health care & medications to patients. Although people have been assisting pharmacists for many years, they have not always been recognized as skilled workers, nor have they always been called pharmacy technicians.

Pharmacy Technicians have been called pharmacy helpers, pharmacy clerks, pharmacy aides, pharmacy assistants, & pharmacy support personnel. Some pharmacy technicians are still given these older titles in some areas of the country, while in other areas they may be called pharmacy technologists.

Pharmacy technicians must have a broad knowledge of pharmacy practice, & be skilled in the techniques required to order, stock, package, & prepare medications, but they do not need the advanced college education required of a licensed pharmacist. Pharmacy technicians may perform many of the same duties as pharmacists, however, all of a technician’s work must be checked by a pharmacist before medication can be dispensed to a patient.
