Depending on the type of health care facility, medical records technicians may also work as a medical insurance specialist, reviewing EHRs and insurance billing requirements.

Pharmacy Technician

Pharmacy Technician Program students learn how to use capsules, creams, solutions, syringes and other pharmacy items to help patients. They work under the direction of a licensed pharmacist. They may mix medications and prepare medicines for dispensing in hospitals, retail pharmacies and private pharmacies as well. In addition, students in this program gain additional skills as a phlebotomist and laboratory procedures—key requirements for pharmacies expanding medical services, especially laboratory work and vaccinations. According to the BLS, experienced Pharmacy Technicians make approximately $31,750 annually, and states are in the process of formalizing education requirements for these positions. In fact, Texas requires them to pass a formal certification which in most cases would call for the candidate to attend an accredited training program prior to sitting for the certification examination.
