Important Information About Licensure Requirements

All residents must be licensed by the South Carolina Board of Pharmacy (for the Medicine Mart position) or the Georgia Board of Pharmacy (for the Barney’s Pharmacy position) by September 1st.  Both boards require 1500 intern hours; 500 of which must come from working in a hospital or retail setting (i.e not earned from an experiential requirement of your school).  If you earned intern hours in another state, that state’s Board of Pharmacy will need to send the hours directly to the Georgia or South Carolina Board of Pharmacy.  In addition to passing the NAPLEX and MPJE, the Georgia Board of Pharmacy requires an applicant successfully pass a practical examination, which is currently offered 4 times a year: January, March, June and August.  Please note that in order to meet our September 1st deadline, our Barney’s Pharmacy resident will need to take the June or August practical exam.  There is no practical exam for South Carolina. 

If you have not received your license by September 1st, your participation in the residency program will be reviewed by the Residency Advisory Committee and you may be dismissed from the program.
