4729-3-04 Pharmacy intern identification card renewal.

A pharmacy intern may renew his/her identification card each year provided he/she is actively working toward the requirements for licensure as a pharmacist and otherwise meets the requirements and rules of the state board of pharmacy. The state board of pharmacy may, pursuant to rule 4729-5-04 of the Administrative Code, deny the issuance of an identification card to practice pharmacy as an intern.

(A) An intern shall be considered to be actively working towards licensure as a pharmacist if he/she has complied with all of the statutes and rules regarding internship since registration as a pharmacy intern, and:

(1) He/she is enrolled in a school of pharmacy and is taking professional classes directly related to the practice of pharmacy; or

(2) He/she is a member of the armed forces and can provide evidence that he/she has been accepted for enrollment in a school of pharmacy upon his/her release from the armed forces; or

(B) An intern who has obtained a first professional degree in pharmacy from a school of pharmacy, or who has established equivalency by obtaining a "Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Examination Commission (FPGEC)" certificate, may renew his/her license only once. In the event of extraordinary circumstances and when due to no fault of the intern, the board may approve additional renewals.
