Looking for information and help with the application process.
hey everyone, I'm looking for german Pharmacists here that are preparing for the FPGEC. I'm a Pharmacist as well, currently working in Germany. I'm interested in obtaining my license in the US, therefore I'm searching for information about the visa and people that already went through this process. I would appreciate any further help :) best regards, Linda
Hello everybody, I am a German Pharmacist and I moved tothe USA last year. I am now trying to figure out what I need to doto become a licensed Pharmacist here. I know that there is the FPGECProgramm including the FPGEE. My problem is that I am not sure if Iam qualified or the test. My main issue is the 5 year-DegreeRequirement (I graduated after 2003). To become a Pharmacist inGermany you need to go to university for 4 years and pass the firstand second State Exam. Then you need to leave the university and do a one-year internship. After the year of internship you have anothertest (the third State Exam). Only if you pass all these three testsyou get the license to work. So it takes at least 5 years to be aPharmcist. Now I do not know if I meet therequirement of 5 years because my education at the university wasonly 4 years and the website of the NABP clearly says thatinternships do not count. Is there another German Pharmcist whograduated after 2003 and was able to take the test? Does anybody know what I can do if theinternship does not count? Can I just go university here for a yearto get the 5 years or is my whole degree useless? I am thankful for every answer!
I am researching for my German girlfriend, who is a pharmacy student, currently in her 3rd semester at Freiburg University in Germany. The degree is 5 years long, including 1 year of internship before being officially licensed. We have read everything there is to read on the NABP, ECE, and State board websites, and we have sent dozens of emails. However, we still cannot figure out whether or not she will really be eligible for the FPGEE, and the work load is honestly too much to bear without being assured that the degree can transfer. It may be of note that the university also offers a bachelors program for pharmacy, and she is in the level above that. Are there any German graduates that can help, or anyone that may know of a way to get an early evaluation? Thanks (SUMMARY: German pharmacy grad post-2003 eligible for FPGEE?)
