Army Pharmacy Specialist Answer
by: David Shedd

Yes, you need to be in the Army in order to become an Army Pharmacy Specialist.

In order to be awarded the MOS 68Q classification, the completion of a 19 week basic pharmacy course, held at Fort Sam Houston base in Texas, is mandatory.

For this MOS position, knowledge is expected in the areas of: pharmaceutical calculations, pharmaceutical chemistry, the ethics practiced in pharmacology and medical pharmacy management, quality assurance, medical administrative procedures, local and medical supply procedures, and management of various documentations.

To gain entry into this career field, the successful completion of one year of high school or one unit of college algebra is more or less mandatory.

The completion of high school or college courses in physiology, anatomy, chemistry, biology, typing and automated data processing is highly recommended.
