The caring and professional work done by pharmacy technicians across the country is in high demand. Can you think of a time in your life when you or a loved one needed a certain medical prescription to healthfully and comfortably live everyday life?

They should also be able to effectively communicate with co-technicians, stand on their feet for long periods of time, and be versed in medical terms and uses in case patients have questions.
