Section 24G: Pharmacy interns

Section 24G. A pharmacy intern may engage in the full range of activities conducted by a registered pharmacist; provided, that the intern shall remain under the direct supervision of a registered pharmacist preceptor at all times.

A pharmacy intern may administer immunizations as designated by the department of public health; provided, that the intern shall complete an immunization training program, which is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, prior to administering an immunization; and provided further, that the intern shall remain under the direct supervision of a pharmacist who has met all board qualifications to administer immunizations.

For the purposes of this section, ''pharmacy intern'' shall mean an individual who: (i) has completed 2 years of an academic curriculum or who has standing as a student beyond the second-year class in the undergraduate academic sequence of an approved college or school of pharmacy; and (ii) is registered by the board to acquire the practical experience, which is a prerequisite to examination for personal registration as a pharmacist, under the direction of a board-approved registered pharmacist.
