Here's what you need to renew your Michigan Pharmacy license
The information below is a summary of the minimum requirements set forth by the Bureau of Professional Licensing/Licensing Division. For a more detailed requirements breakdown, please see the board's site.
If you hold Pharmacy licenses in multiple states, please make sure to check each state's requirements.
Michigan Pharmacy: Pharmacist (Continuing Education)
1 Hour - Pain Management
Implicit Bias Training
New Applicants for licensure or registration are required to have completed 2 hours of implicit bias training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.
Renewing licensees and registrants are required to complete 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of their license or registration cycle. However, for initial renewal after June 1, 2021, licensees will only need to have 1 hour for each year since the rule’s promulgation date of June 1, 2021.
For example, if you are scheduled to renew your license in August of 2022, you would only be required to have 1 hour of training, even if the length of your license was 3 years. Remember: The rule also specifically states that this training is in addition to any continuing education requirements required for renewal.
Subsequent renewals will require 1 hour of implicit bias training for each year of the license or registration cycle.
Training that was taken prior the promulgation of the rule (June 1, 2021) and within the license cycle that is up for renewal, qualifies toward the requirement for renewals. However, the rule allows new applicants for licensure or registration to complete the training within the 5 years immediately preceding issuance of the license or registration.
All professions licensed or registered under the Michigan Public Health Code, except for Veterinary Medicine, are required to take Implicit Bias Training.
10 hours in each cycle must be done in a live setting
Rosters are sent to NABP within 10 business days. We are unable to report your hours after 60 days.
