Pharmacy Technician

Another career which related to medical word is work as a pharmacy technician. Technicians working in pharmacies have some of responsibilities such as prepare the prescription, which could include counting pills, or weighing, measuring, or mixing the medication. Once the prescription is filled, a pharmacy tech will price and file it, and it must be checked by an accredited physician before it is given to a patient. In this setting technologists may also prepare insurance claim forms, stock, and take inventory of prescription and over-the-counter medications.

After completed, you are already on your way to getting the acclaimed pharmacy technician salary!
