I asked Illinois board of pharmacy about the intern license and the 1,200 hours and that was the response:Illinois does not issue a Pharmacist Intern license. The only ones allowed to work in a pharmacy are Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technicians licensed by the Department.
If you wish to apply for a pharmacist license to have your credentials reviewed you will need to submit an application for pharmacist on the basis of examination. You will need to submit with the application proof of education, a copy of your ECE certificate and a copy of the FPGEC with the application.
The 1,200 hours must be approved by the Board prior to commencement if the applicant is not previously licensed in another state.
Applicants upon approval of their application receive sample courses and must obtain the location on their own as the Department does not recommend anything nor maintain a listing of possible sites.
