    Question Not currently a licensed pharmacist-can I still sit for FPGEE?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi all,

    I have researched high and low about the FPGEC but am unable to find a concise answer to my question. Some background information on me: I am a B.S.c Pharmacy graduate from the University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates. As I understand one of the requirements that you must meet in order to be able to sit for the FPGEE is proof that you are licensed and/or registered for unrestricted practice of pharmacy in a foreign country. As it stands I am not currently licensed to practice pharmacy in the United Arab Emirates or anywhere else for that matter. Does this mean I am unable to sit for the FPGEE? I do hope someone is able to shed some light on my dilemma. I will also contact the NABP for more information in this regard.


    Thank you.

    Sorry but i dont think u can.. What u can do is write a letter to nabp and ask them about your options and what u can do to start getting licensed.. They are obligated to send u an asnwer back even if it takes some time but they will.. I hope this helps

    Thank you.

    Hello I liked your post and I am having the same situation as you. I studied and finished pharmacy school also at the university of sharjah and we left the UAE. Also once we left our visa got void. So I was just wondering about what you have done and if you can help me.

    As it stands, in order to sit for the FPGEE you must be licensed to practice pharmacy in the country you earned your degree. If there is any concern, you must reach out to NABP regarding your specific situation.
