Pharmacy Assistants assist the Pharmacist in the technical aspects of prescription filling as well as performing the administrative duties within a pharmacy so that the Pharmacist will have more opportunity to provide patient care. Their duties can include:

  • Receiving prescriptions from patients
  • Providing customer service and answering phone inquiries
  • Obtaining approvals for refills
  • Assisting the pharmacist in maintaining stock levels of drugs and supplies
  • Stocking of prescription filling supplies
  • Counting tablets and labeling bottles

If you are interested in pursuing an entry-level position within a pharmacy setting, you are invited to attend our upcoming Pharmacy Assistant Program Open House.  Our guest speaker is Momen El'Ghazouly, a licensed Pharmacist and the owner / operator of his own pharmacy in Edmonton.  Momen will be sharing with us the expectations of a pharmacy student in the retail and hospital pharmacy settings as well as what students can expect from their job duties.
