Pharmacy Degrees and Pharmacy Technician Training

There are two levels of pharmacy work: pharmacy technicians and pharmacists. Both are among the fastest-growing professions in the healthcare industry. Part of the growth stems from the desire for convenience and better customer service that has led to an increase in the number of pharmacies at healthcare facilities as well as retail, department and grocery stores.

Pharmacy Technician Jobs

Pharmacy technicians work under the direct supervision of pharmacists, filling prescriptions as ordered by physicians, fielding customers’ calls and performing other administrative duties. While exact job duties can vary, pharmacy technicians typically measure amounts needed for prescriptions, mix or compound medications, package and label prescriptions and handle administrative duties that may include answering customer phone calls and processing insurance claims.

How to Become a Pharmacist Technician

Those seeking to become pharmacy technicians can receive pharmacy technician certification online or at traditional schools. It’s an in-demand profession, with projections from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) calling for a 32% increase in pharmacy technician jobs by 2020.

Pharmacist Careers

Pharmacists are also in a growing profession, with BLS projections calling for a 25% increase in the number of pharmacists by 2020. Like many occupations in healthcare, the growth in pharmacy is being driven in part by an aging Baby Boomer population that is expected to live longer and require more medical services than previous generations.

Pharmacists hold a very important job: measuring and dispensing medications as requested by a physician, and also advising patients on how those medications should be administered. Holding such a job requires both a bachelor’s degree and a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.
