The U.S. Department of Labor projects faster-than-average employment growth for pharmacy technicians through 2022. As the role of the pharmacist shifts to consultation, more technicians will be needed to assemble and dispense medications. Furthermore, new employment avenues and responsibilities will mirror that of the expanding and evolving role of the pharmacist. A strong demand is emerging for technicians with specialized training to work in specific areas, such as emergency room and nuclear pharmacy. An increasing number of pharmacy technicians will be needed as the number of elderly Americans (who, on average, require more prescription medication than younger generations) continues to rise.
