A preceptor may not supervise more than two interns simultaneously during a shift at an SRI site where patient specific recommendations for care or medications are provided without prior written authorization of the board.

The preceptor must retain documentation of all interns monitored during this timeframe.


With the written approval of a school of pharmacy, and when in their professional judgment it is appropriate, a preceptor may supervise up to 10 interns at public-health outreach programs such as informational health fairs that provide general information but not direct patient care.


For immunization clinics, an immunizing pharmacist may supervise up to two immunizing interns.
