Any person with a disability who needs accommodations to attend a live program should contact the Conferences and Professional Services office at 231/591-5824 at least 72 hours in advance.

The Michigan Public Health Code and board administrative rules require every pharmacist who has held their license for a full two-year period, to complete, during the 2-year period prior to the renewal of the license, at least 30 hours of board-approved continuing education, with at least 1 (one) hour in pain management and not less than 10 (ten) hours in live programs or courses. Pursuant to this requirement, the Board of Pharmacy has promulgated rules to establish specific criteria for the Board’s approval of continuing education courses and programs.
