With an aging population putting increasing strain on the healthcare system in the US, trained pharmacy technicians are increasingly in demand, making now a great time to get into a rapidly growing job market.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the pharmacy sector is growing at such a speed that 31,500 more pharmacy tech roles will need to be filled by 2028, a much faster growth rate than most other occupations in the US.
Because of the rapid growth in the pharmacy sector, pharmacy technicians now enjoy unparalleled advancement opportunities in a variety of working environments.
Retail pharmacies represent the largest source of employment for pharmacy technicians, paying an average of around $15.36 an hour. However, because of the demand for pharmacy technicians, the opportunity to work in a hospital and urgent care pharmacies can see wages rise as high as $18.71 an hour.
Additionally, with additional training, a pharmacy technician qualification opens up opportunities in other related healthcare fields, with the possibility of moving into positions in sectors such as medical billing, healthcare management, nursing, or even research.
Some examples of possible career advancement opportunities include working as a pharmacy benefit manager, responsible for insurance claims for medications, or as an insurance billing specialist working to processing insurance claims in a hospital.
