Welcome to the MCPHS resource for pharmacy internship and licensure. It is important to remember that licensure and internship differs by jurisdiction. The United States has a total of 54 jurisdictions (50 states; Washington, D.C.; and U.S. Territories). The Registrar’s Office completes application materials for internship and licensure candidates and assists students in navigating the overall licensing process.
MCPHS requires all students in the professional phase of the Doctor of Pharmacy program to be registered as pharmacy interns in the state of Massachusetts in order to participate in required coursework in our on-campus registered pharmacy practice labs and our MCPHS University sponsored rotations (IPPE/APPE).
