Pharmacy Technician

As a newly regulated profession with a greater scope of practice, pharmacy technicians play an integral role in the pharmacy practice. Pharmacy Technicians take on more responsibility for the technical components of dispensing within the pharmacy, allowing pharmacists to provide more comprehensive patient care services.
