When to Register as an Intern
Submit an application to register as a Delaware Pharmacist Intern if you:
- are in at least the first professional year of the pharmacy curriculum or have graduated from an accredited school or college of pharmacy in the U.S and
- wish to work in a Delaware Pharmacy to attain required hours of pre-licensure experience.
If you graduated from school or college of pharmacy outside the U.S., submit the Registration of Internship-Foreign School application in DELPROS instead.
To be licensed as a Pharmacist in Delaware, you must provide proof that you have completed 1,500 hours of pre-licensure experience. The 1500 hours may include any combination of the following:
- practicum hours you complete during or after your first professional year in your school or college of pharmacy while under supervision of a pharmacist preceptor affiliated with the school or college
- internship hours transferred from another jurisdiction(s) where you worked under the supervision of a licensed pharmacist preceptor
- internship hours you work in a Delaware pharmacy under supervision of a Delaware-licensed pharmacist preceptor.
To work as an Intern in a Delaware pharmacy, you must select a Delaware-licensed pharmacist to be your preceptor.
- The preceptor must agree to provide you with the experience outlined in the Board’s Practical Experience Program.
- When you complete your internship hours or end your relationship with a preceptor, the preceptor must submit the completed Affidavit of Intern Experience form.
- If your preceptor changes, the new preceptor must submit a new Affidavit of Preceptor form within ten calendar days of the change.
For information on the internship program, read the Practical Experience Program for Pharmacy Preceptors and Interns.
