Pharmacist

Overview: Pharmacists in the Air Force Reserve have greater administrative and supervisory functions than their civilian counterparts. They oversee the filling, labeling and dispensing of all drug orders rather than filling each order themselves. This leaves more time for management and other responsibilities, as these officers also serve in teaching, consulting and research capacities.

Specific Tasks:

  • Plan, organize, staff and direct pharmacy departments according to established policies and procedures 
  • Communicate drug information to patients, physicians, nurses and supportive personnel

  • Provide in-service training for medical, nursing and pharmacy staffs 
  • Establish a research unit within the pharmacy department

Requirements:

  • Graduate of an accredited school of pharmacy recognized by the American Council of Pharmaceutical Education or achieved foreign pharmacy graduate equivalency certification 
  • Within 12 months of commissioning, a new graduate must obtain license by a Board of Pharmacy to practice pharmacy in a state or territory of the U.S. or District of Columbia
  • Normal color vision

Training:

  • For those without a prior military service commission, the first step is completion of Commissioned Officer Training (COT). This 5 week course at Maxwell AFB, AL will familiarize you with military life, your role as an officer and military healthcare.
