I am a Foreign Pharmacy Graduate passed NAPLEX and have 1500 hours of internship. I do not have an active pharmacist license.
I’d like to know whether I am still eligible to become Epic informatics pharmacist ?
Please do advice.
Congratulations on passing the FPGEE exam as well as the NAPLEX and for getting in your 1,500 internship hours… Wow… You’ve been busy!
Regarding whether or not you are eligible to become an Epic Informatics Pharmacist, the simple answer is “No”.
Without a pharmacist license, you will not be able to get any job that requires a licensed pharmacist.
However…. Having said that, there are some organization that do not require a pharmacist to be their Epic analysts so if you were to apply for an IT/Epic analyst position with them, then not having your pharmacist license may not be an issue.
If an organization requires a licensed pharmacist, then you might not be in the running. You could try to show that you have a foreign pharmacy degree and have passed the above exams, but not having an actual license in any of the 50 U.S. states may be a showstopper for you.
Good luck and please let us know if things pan out the way you want them to.
