Pharmacy Technicians

History

Professionally trained pharmacy technicians have assisted pharmacists since the 1950s. In recent years, the role of the pharmacist has shifted and evolved away from standard dispensing to consultation, restricting the time actually spent dispensing medication. Pharmacy technicians have filled this gap, enjoying a significant increase in duties and responsibilities, and becoming an even more integral part of the pharmaceutical health care team.
