Pharmacy Technician Day Breaks Records
In 2018, recognition of Tech Day expanded to countries across the world. In honor of the day on October 16, the pharmacy technician community participated in multiple ways, drawing record numbers of technicians into the international conversation. Technicians participated in various activities, including the #RxTechDay chat throughout the day, sharing photos via the Facebook event, downloading graphics and badges to wear and display, and adding a Technician Day frame to their Facebook profile.
PTCB appreciates the commitment of so many pharmacy technicians who are dedicated to their work and their patients. Thank you, CPhTs.
Medication Safety Spotlight: Applause for CPhTs!
“Being selected as one of 12 students out of nearly 400 applicants for the Pharmacy Technician Training Program at Dartmouth-Hitchcock was a real honor. The program was challenging and readied me to pass the PTCB Certification exam -- the PTCE -- and open a new chapter in my career as a pharmacy technician. I love working in the pharmacy. It is rewarding to know that what I do every day makes a difference in someone’s life.”

“Tiffany Bartlett, CPhT, CSPT, … has been a certified pharmacy technician for more than 20 years and a specialty pharmacy technician at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Spring, TX, for almost three years. ‘I think there are many responsibilities that can be delegated to the technician, such as insurance specialist, educator, medication therapy management, and quality control. With each new opportunity, each role should be evaluated and minimum guidelines should be established relating to educational requirements and work experience in order to choose the right candidate for the position,’ says Bartlett. ‘Pharmacy technicians are anxious to break out of their traditional roles in retail and hospital and use their skills and knowledge to practice in exciting new opportunities.’”
PTCB Materials and Graphics
PTCB created promotional materials, including advertisements, web banners, brochures, flyers, and more and shared them with state associates and the pharmacy community.
PTCB published new multi-panel brochures for those who want to learn about PTCB’s programs and for technicians interested in taking the next step in their career to become certified.
