No post and when I called them they said it's still in the process. I learned not to take their word when they say ''you should hear from us in 2 weeks time". Like someone said "every decision is case by case" I stop studying for now and back to work. A bit relife. I'll be doing the Tofel soon. Thanks An12345

Jessica 2525 you just have to wait and see :( I still have not heard from them, and was hoping to sit tomorrow's exam. I gave up calling them. Keep your fingers crossed. Good luck to 19th April 10 exam takers. Hope they'll do well.

Wow am I glad that I didn't take the April exam cause I wouldn't have made it to the US due to the flight ban since 14th of April. That would have been so cruel to miss an exam after studying so hard. What would NABP do for those who missed their exam? Who told that volcano in Iceland to erupt and stop all flights?!?

--Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Apr 2003)

Hello all,

 

I just wanted to mention to all the fellow Canadians out there that I graduated after 2003 from a Canadian pharmacy program and I have been accepted to write the FPGEE. I thought that our program was considered a four year program and for years I believed I would not be able to get licensed in the States. However, after I finally called the NABP, they confirmed that the Canadian degree is considered a "four plus one" - four year degree plus one year foundational/prerequisites/whatcha-ma-call-it

 

I submitted my ECE documentation in early April and received word within a couple of weeks. I sat on my documents for a while and then sent everything off to the NABP at the end of April and received word within four weeks, probably three, that everything had been approved and I am now signed up for certain for the September 30th exam. It all went surprisingly quick for me, though I guess I did obsessive-compulsively check everything multiple times.

 

I'm just posting this so that other Canadian pharmacists curious about their equivalency eligibility will have a quick answer.

Hello everyone, I do plan to submit my documents for evaluation to the NABP. I had done my A levels prior to getting into pharmacy school in Pakistan. I have heard that A levels is accepted by the ECE as prepharmacy coursework. Is it true??

 

Hafiz, I did something like an A-level prior to B Pharm and I was eligible for the FPGEE exam.

Hi Elnagar, the FPGEE requires candidates to have a Bachelor of Pharmacy. In your case, I'm afraid you might not be able to sit for FPGEE. But I suggest you call NABP to make a final try.

Hi Goldie,

Even I got ECE evaluation report. I got my Bachelor of Pharmacy degree done in Jan 2002. ECE report says that I have US equivalence to " Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Pharmaceutical Sciences".

Do you think I have some chance to sit in FPGEE?

Thanks,

Hi everyone,

 

I have a B.Pharm degree from Israel. There are only two universities that teach Pharmacy. Studying takes four years and after that internship for another six months. We have to complete the internship successfully in order to get the diploma and the right to work as a pharmacist.

I want to practice Pharmacy in the U.S and from what I've read in the NABP site, it is not enough (so I understood).

Maybe someone here studied in Israel and can tell me if it's enough? If not, what can I do? Do I need a second degree? In what major?

Everyone who knows and can help me, I'll be very thankfull.

dear jigneshpatel,

 

To answer your questions:

 

1. my ECE says I have a US equivalent of Bachelor of Pharmacy degree.

 

2 & 3. Back in Malaysia, 12th grade in US is equivalent to our high school. After high school, we cannot enroll into a Pharmacy degree, we need a Pre-University foundation (also called Pre-pharmacy coursework in US). My Pre-university foundation is a 2 years program (however, ECE says my 2 years is equivalent to US 1 year of pre-pharmacy). So 1 year pre-pharm + 4 years bachelor of pharmacy degree = 5 years.

 

4. I did not contact the Dean of Ohio. I applied to NABP from Malaysia. I sent in my application to NABP and received the acceptance letter in 3 weeks. But make sure all your documents are complete and notarized. I spent lots of money in notary public services. But it paid off.

 

Have you submitted your FPGEE application to NABP?

All the best to you!

Hi Hafiz and everyone on theforum, how did it go with ECE and FPGEC...did they accept your A' Levels as pre- pharmacy coursework? I graduated in 2007 from India was a four year course but I did my A levels(2yrs) too prior to joining B.Pharm (4year degree). Please do let me know as I want to start the application for FPGEC...thanks
