South Carolina Board of Pharmacy

Practical Experience Requirements for Pharmacy Interns

Intern Certificates may be applied for no sooner than 3 months prior to entering into a College of Pharmacy program. Students must be fully accepted into the program without any contingencies.

Students enrolled in an approved Doctor of Pharmacy program may receive internship credit for up to 1,000 hours of practice related experiences for their school rotations. These hours cannot be used to fulfill the 500 hours of practical experience in a retail or institutional pharmacy.

Practical Experience

  • No more than 40 hours per week of internship training will be allowed. There is no minimum number of hours required per week.

  • Practical experience can be gained at any time either concurrent or non-current with school attendance.

  • A Notification of Employment form (NOE) must be submitted to the Board office within ten (10) days after the beginning of each calendar year and within ten (10) days after the beginning of each new employment. You will receive a letter stating the NOE was received and the date you may begin logging hours.

  • If employed at multiple locations of a pharmacy, a Notification of Employment form (NOE) must be submitted for each location.

  • If there is a change of supervising pharmacist-in-charge, submit the Pharmacy Intern Notification of Pharmacist-in-Charge Change form.

  • An Affidavit of Practical Experience must be submitted to the Board office within ten (10) days after the ending of each calendar year and within ten (10) days after the end of each employment. A $10 fee (personal check or money order) must accompany each Affidavit of Practical Experience form submitted. If submitting multiple Affidavit forms, one check may be submitted for all fees.

  • Intern hours accepted by the Board of Pharmacy may be verified through Licensee Lookup on the LLR website. It may take 4-8 weeks for hours to be updated on the website at the beginning of the new year due to large volume of intern submissions.
