Learn how to support a licensed pharmacist and assist them with patient consultations with SBBCollege’s Pharmacy Technology degree program. General duties of a pharmacy technician include dispensing medications, assembling daily supplies of medication, stocking and inventorying prescriptive and over-the-counter medications, preparing commercially unavailable medications, maintaining patient medical records, repackaging medications, and delivering medications.
Graduates of the SBBCollege Associate’s Pharmacy Technology Degree will be ready to work with pharmacists in this function.
Our pharmacy technology degree program also includes the basic skills that are necessary in order to deal with pharmacists and the prescriptions that they dispense; including an emphasis on communication and customer service in relation to the processing, preparation and distribution of prescriptions and explanation of the medication to patients.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment of pharmacy technicians will increase 12% from 2016-2026. Growth will be driven by the increase in demand for healthcare professionals and the expanded role pharmacies are required to have in relation to patient care along with the increased importance of the role of technicians as caregivers and clerical workers.
