Internship License

The Ohio State Board of Pharmacy requires that a student be actively working towards the requirements for licensure as a pharmacist in order to apply for an intern license. The State Board defines "actively working" as having begun the PharmD classes. For the PharmD program at The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, this means the student must have started attending first professional year (P1) classes in the Fall Semester.  This means that a student accepted into the PharmD program in April who is to begin PharmD classes in August will not be eligible for licensure until the student has begun classes in August.

It is extremely important that each PharmD student applies for an Ohio intern license as soon as possible, once eligible.  A current, active Ohio intern license is required for students to participate in the Introductory and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience courses.  This coursework begins in the P1 year and continues throughout the remainder of the PharmD curriculum.

Enrollment Verification:
Students will need to obtain an enrollment verification form to apply for an internship license. Enrollment verification forms will automatically be prepared for all P1 PharmD students who will begin their professional division coursework in the Fall semester. The forms will be distributed during the first week of fall classes in PHPR 3920 (IPPE-1).  Other students enrolled in the P1 year or higher who need an enrollment verification form for an intern license application may request the form from the Office of Student Affairs (HEB 155).
