When you're a pharmacy officer in the Commissioned Corps, your work takes you out from behind the counter and into the world. You can care for patients as part of a multidisciplinary health care team; review, approve, and monitor new drugs; conduct research; and assist in public health emergencies. There are more leadership opportunities, greater work variety, and a better schedule than you'll find in a commercial pharmacy career. As part of a larger community of dedicated health care professionals, you'll be making a difference in the Nations health while enjoying excellent benefits and work/life balance.

“Whether we're responding to a public health emergency or working as part of a patient care team, pharmacists in the Corps make a difference in peoples' lives every day.”

Assistant Surgeon General and Chief Pharmacy Officer,
U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps
