If you are a physician working in Virginia and are considering medication dispensing at your practice, it is important that you adhere to state laws and regulations. The information included on this page is for reference only, so, please refer to your state medical or pharmaceutical board for updated information.
Registration for Medication Dispensing
To dispense medications in offices in Virginia, physicians must apply for a dispensing license whether they are dispensing controlled substances or non-controlled substances.
Because of this regulation, Nurse practitioners and Physician Assistants can assist by preparing medications for dispensing if the physician is on-site and available to offer consultation.
Every physician in the facility must have their own license and the facility itself must also be licensed and subject to periodic inspections.
