Intern – U.S. School

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.

Internship Program

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.

For information on the internship program, read the Practical Experience Program for Pharmacy Preceptors and Interns.

Information on How to Apply for a License in DELPROS

Applications are processed in DELPROS (Delaware Professional Regulation Online Services). The online license application process is simple and provides you with clear instructions throughout each stage of the application process. We strongly recommend that you understand what the requirements are for the license you are pursuing. Then, request and gather the documents you need before you begin the application process. Most of the information and forms are on this website. For further clarification of requirements, refer to your profession’s License Law and the Rules and Regulations.

In order to apply for a license or service request, you must have a DELPROS account. To create a new account or log into an existing DELPROS account, follow the instructions at the beginning of the application process. As part of the final steps of the application process, DELPROS instructs you to either “attach” or “upload” the required documents directly to your application and/or to “acknowledge” that you will either send them in yourself or make arrangements for “third-party” documents/forms to be sent to the Board office. Examples of “third-party forms” are transcripts from schools, employment verifications from a supervisor, and license verifications from another state. These forms usually require a signature, seal, or notary, therefore, must be mailed into the Board office directly. All documents received by mail are scanned and attached to the appropriate license records.

In DELPROS, you have the ability to save your application and return to it to edit/update information or upload documents for up to six months. However, if you do not submit your application within six months, you will have to restart your online application process. The Board office begins processing applications shortly after submission in the portal. You may check the status of your application in the DELPROS system throughout the whole process and we will correspond with you by email. The requirements for this license type are provided in the following section(s).


In addition to submitting the application and fee in DELPROS, you must submit:
