Job duties include providing medication and other health care products to patients as well as working with third party and doctors’ offices in resolving adjudication of patients’ insurance or state programs. Pharmacy technicians often do the routine tasks associated with preparing prescribed medication and doctor calls, expense and medication orders, returns and expired credits, and non-licensed pharmacy management. Effective July 1, 2010, all pharmacy technicians working in Iowa must be nationally certified by an accredited technician certification board approved by the Iowa Board of Pharmacy. This program will assist students in meeting the new requirement that pharmacy technicians successfully complete a certification exam.
