Pharmacy technicians are an integral and critical member of the health-care team. They work with pharmacists in drug preparation, distribution, and management in a variety of health-care settings. Duties include drug and sterile product preparation, counting, pouring, labeling pharmaceutical products for distribution, data entry, inventory control and management, and customer service.
