Residents are NOT required to obtain licensure prior to beginning the residency program. However, it would be in the resident's best interest to become licensed during the orientation month in order to carryout pharmacist duties. The resident may hold a pharmacy license in any of the 50 states as required by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The resident MUST obtain licensure NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 30th. If licensure is not obtained by this time, residents are subject to dismissal from the program. This will be determined on a case by case basis at the discretion of the residency advisory committee. All residents are required to have a minimum of two-thirds of the residency completed as a licensed pharmacist, as instructed by the residency standards.
