Hello Graduates!
This week marks one month since your graduation date, and many of you have communicated with us about your employment opportunities, and residency plans. It is a very exciting time! It has been a frustrating time also, unfortunately, regarding your ATT numbers, so here is a status update:
All of your Education Verification Forms were sent to the PA State Board of Pharmacy (SBOP) thirty days prior to your graduation date. The Board will not accept them any earlier. We have documentation that they were received at the SBOP as well. We have had numerous conversations via phone and email with SBOP personnel about the delay in processing Pitt Pharmacy applications, and they have assured us that they are processing applications as fast as they can, by your original application date in PALS.
In the last class communication we sent to the class (right after graduation), we shared what the SBOP told us, which was that ATTs should start to come in June. This is later than in prior years, but a result of issues with the new on-line PALS process. In talking to the SBOP this week, they have told us that they are now working on processing applications submitted at the end of March, so hopefully your numbers will come soon!
Additionally, I have been in contact with the other Schools of Pharmacy in PA, and it is challenging for all of us. Some schools are further along than us (even though we graduated earlier), but no school has all of their students complete with ATTs for both NAPLEX and MJPE. We are all patiently waiting.
Finally, for those of you that have received your ATT numbers, good luck on your NAPLEX and MJPE exams!
As always, please let us know if you have further questions.
