Pharmacy Technician



  • Overview

    As a pharmacy technician, knowing the proper way to compound medications is a must. Working areas in the pharmacy should be kept clean to provide a safe environment for compound preparation and ensure that contamination from the environment does not occur. Technicians must also be able to recognize the correct supplies needed for each type of compounding performed. Whether in a large scale compounding pharmacy or in a pharmacy where occasional compounds are prepared, knowing how to keep medications safe, your work area clean, the reasons we compound, and being familiar with the supplies needed to compound create a stress free recipe for an indispensable compounding technician.
