Mississippi Physician Dispensing Laws & Regulations
Note: PharmaLink has compiled the information below for reference only. State dispensing regulations change frequently and we recommend consulting an attorney or your state medical or pharmacy board with specific questions or to verify your eligibility to dispense.
Physician dispensing in Mississippi is allowed but physicians must register with the Mississippi State Board of Medical Licensure as a dispensing physician and obtain at least 10 hours of Category 1 AMA or AOA approved CME in the area of Pharmacology and/or Dispensing of Medication in order to dispense. Physicians may also be subject to routine inspections and must personally dispense medications to patients. Physicians may not delegate dispensing authorities to other providers. You can find more detail about Mississippi dispensing regulations here.
