All Commissioned Corps officers must meet several basic qualifications: you must be a U.S. citizen, be less than 44 years of age, and pass a physical examination. To be a pharmacy officer, you also need a:
- B.S. or Pharm.D. degree from a program that is accredited by the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education
- Current, unrestricted, and valid pharmacy license to practice in one of the 50 States; Washington, DC; Commonwealth of Puerto Rico; the U.S. Virgin Islands; or Guam.
If you just graduated from pharmacy school and do not yet have a license, you may still apply to the Commissioned Corps, and you may be appointed for a limited tour of duty while you pursue your license.
If you are a pharmacy student or pharmacist interested in the Commissioned Corps, take the next step! E-mail us your questions, call us at 800-279-1605, or apply online now.
