Alaska Board of Pharmacy

Attention: The division is recruiting for multiple positions across the state to fill vacancies in important roles. Most positions are telework-capable and could work outside our home office locations. Click here to review job descriptions and apply. Check back often as new recruitments are added.

The Board of Pharmacy “the board” is staffed by the Division of Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing. The board consists of five pharmacists and two public members. Board members are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Legislature.

The board adopts regulations to carry out laws governing pharmacy practice in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against licensees who violate laws under AS 08, 12 AAC 52, and other applicable laws. The board is required to meet at least three (3) times a year, all of which may be held via teleconference or videoconference. Though not required, a public comment period may be on the agenda if appropriately published. Meeting agendas and minutes are available from the board’s executive administrator and will be posted to this website once prepared. Draft minutes are typically available within 10 days subsequent to a meeting while final minutes are typically posted within 3-4 months.

Hard Copy License Certificates Discontinued

The division no longer mails hardcopy license certificates due to limited resources and staffing vacancies. Official copies of license certificates are now provided in licensees’ individual MY LICENSE self-service portal accounts. The certificates will be located under the “initial application” and “renewal” events in the MY LICENSE account.
