What is a Pharmacy Technician?

A pharmacy technician assists the pharmacist with various pharmacy related work. Information on Ohio's laws and rules regarding qualified pharmacy technicians may be found on the Ohio Board of Pharmacy website at the following link under PHARMACY TECHNICIAN LAW: http://www.pharmacy.ohio.gov/whatsnew.htm

According to the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board, a pharmacy technician "is a person who works under the direct supervision of a licensed pharmacist and performs many pharmacy-related functions. Pharmacy technicians are used in a wide variety of practice settings, including community pharmacies, hospitals, the military, in home health care, long term care, mail service facility, managed health care facilities, and educational/training programs. For the purposes of national voluntary certification, pharmacy technicians are defined as individuals working in a pharmacy, who under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist, assist in pharmacy activities not requiring the professional judgment of a pharmacist. The pharmacy technician is accountable to the supervising pharmacist, who is legally responsible by virtue of state licensure for the care and safety of patients served by the pharmacy. The pharmacy technician performs activities as the result of having certain knowledge and skills.
