im a foreign pharmacy graduate. im currently living in pakistan, having done my graduation in the course pharm D this year.actually im planning to move to pensylvania this year.i would like to know the requirements of practising as a licensed pharmacist in PA as well as the eligibility criteria to be able to apply in the pharmacy residency programs in PA.
i believe i would have to take the licensing exams including NAPLEX,MPJE,FPGEE and TOEFL?...is that all?which one should be taken first and where shall i begin my preparation from?any books suggested?
To be approved to take these tests, PA requires 1500 intern hours that are documented and signed off by a pharmacist.where should these intern hours be completed and what do i have to do before starting such an internship?
Besides will i still have to take all these licensing tests even if i go for some masters program-say masters in pharmacology for an example- or i could start right away with a foreign state pharm D degree?
being a foreign graduate i have absolutely no idea about working as a pharmacist in the US.plz help me out im really confused!
I am a graduate in pharmacy from Pakistan and have completed my degree of Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm-D.) I also want to work as a licensed pharmacist in USA. I am currently enrolled in M.Phil (Masters) Pharmacology.
We can talk on skype if you want and can share our knowledge and help out eachother.
Hope to hear from you guys soon.
