PEBC for Foreign Graduates
pineapples posted a topic in Pharmacy ForumHello! I'm really glad that I've found this site. :D I just want to ask you guys if you can give me some sort of walkthrough as to what I should do if I want to work in Canada as a pharmacist. My friend and I already visited the PEBC website but we're still really confused as to what we should do first. Please help us :D Okay to give you a bit of a background, we are graduates of a 4 year BS Pharmacy in the Philippines and we already passed the Board Exams here. Thank you and God bless! ~
Hello everyone, I recently have this question when looking for job opportunities to get internship hours in pharmacy. I came to the States for graduate school, but recently feel that basic science research is not so much what I want to pursue for the rest of my life. One of the options I have been considering is to become a clinical pharmacist. During grad school, as a foreign pharmacy graduate, I was able to pass FPGEE, TOEFL, obtain my FPGEC, and I currently hold an intern license. To become a pharmacist, I need to accumulate 1500 internship hours in the States. I have tried applying for internship positions and emailing around, but no luck in getting a paid position. I do not have visa sponsorship issues, so my guess is that I might be lacking real clinical pharmacy experience with only a few rotations and internships. But I am competing with other pharmacy graduate students who would not have much experience, either. So… What would a hiring person be looking for when hiring an intern? Should I also try applying for tech positions? Although I was lucky to get a volunteer position, I have to keep my current job to pay my bills and can only squeeze so little time to volunteer at the pharmacy to get my hours, which has been overwhelming just for the past two months or so. I cannot imagine living this life for another two years juggling amongst two jobs. So I really hope I could find something to quickly accumulate my internship hours! I recall the manager who looked at my resume told me it didn’t look like I wanted to stay in clinical pharmacy, I wonder if it is due to the research experience I have? Since graduation, most of my accomplishments have been in the research field, including project management, teaching, presentations, and obtaining grant funding. Would any of the hiring person see this as a plus? Or should I downplay my grad school time? If you were the hiring person (pharmacy or HR), will you hire a PhD in your pharmacy? What advice would you give? Thank you for reading through this post and any input is appreciated!
Some people think that college and university students must not spend at least a semester studying in a foreign country. This issue is controversial; however, a closer examination reveals that college students must spend at least a semester in a foreign country which will be beneficial to them. One of the reasons for students to spend a semester in foreign country is that the student can learn about their culture. This knowledge about other culture will expose them to different traditions of the world. It will help them better understand how different people live all over the world. Furthermore, the student can get a chance to learn a new language. With the new language, student can interact with other people, thus breaking the language barrier. They will be able to learn new information from the foreign text which would otherwise will be unavailable to them without translation. Perhaps, the best reason the students must study abroad is that the student will strengthen the international ties between the nations. The students can play a major role in maintaining peaceful relations with other nations by living in foreign country trying to understand their culture. In summary, the student must study abroad for at least a semester because it will be beneficial for both students and our country. Overall, studying in a foreign country will be a great and a new experience for the student which will improve their outlook of the world at large.
