Failure to become licensed during this one month grace period may result in dismissal from the program.
What tips do you have for out of state candidates to ensure they are licensed in accordance with the program policy?
Start application early, look at application materials even 2-3 months before graduation so that you're ready to send them in shortly after the match results are known.
You are required to send in the controlled substance license application with associated fees in order to process your application. Failure to do so may delay licensure.
You may send in application packet materials even before your school sends your Certificate of Education into the Board.
If you don't think you'll be licensed before the start date, you must have a valid Michigan intern license, this application takes about 4-6 weeks to process.
Make yourself very familiar with the Michigan board of pharmacy website (www.michigan.gov/healthlicense). Many questions will be answered in the Licensing Information and Frequently Asked Questions sections.
Don't be afraid to call the board, at 517-335-0918, with any questions you have about how to's and what's required for the applications.
The Board will send you a customer number where you can check online for the status of your application.
