Intern – U.S. School

When to Register as an Intern

File this application form 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., file the Application for Registration of Internship-Foreign School form instead.

If you have graduated and wish to take the NAPLEX, you must also submit an Application for Pharmacist Licensure by Examination or Score Transfer form.

  • 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 as your preceptor.
