Hi I have an MPharm degree which was 4 years from cardiff university in 2014, passed my pre reg in 2015 and have been working as a community pharmacy till i left in july 2015. I am doing my research for the journey to get licensed.

Im living in california and can see i need to apply to

FPGEC first - get the ECE to accredit my degree, sit the FPGEE and the english exam

then i need to apply to the boards and have the NAPLEX

and then finally the california board exam.

anyone who has gone through this journey?
can you please give me a story of what your process was?

from what i have seen on FPGEC page they only accept 5year pharmacy programmes as of any 2013 graduates, however they do accept some pre pharmacy courses/education carried out in order to obtain entry to pharm school (so I'm thinking this would be a-levels).

Im trying to get as much up to date info from anyone from uk converting really.

greatly appreciated thanks
