Begin a career where you play a critical role in contributing to patient care as a pharmacy technician.
Humber Pharmacy Technician graduates are in demand and have numerous opportunities to contribute to the health and well-being of Canadians. According to Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, the need for pharmacy technicians “has been strong, due to rising needs associated with population aging, increases in government funding for health care and a high number of retirements of existing workers.”
Pharmacy technicians perform many tasks including filling and final release of prescriptions, compounding medications and managing day-to-day operations. Pursue opportunities in various settings, such as in community/retail and hospital pharmacies, long-term care facilities, pharmaceutical manufacturers, third-party insurance companies, computer software companies and government agencies. You will also have options in related fields, including as a narcotic destruction technician, pharmacy events co-ordinator, software specialist and medication reconciliation technician.
