One thought on “Massachusetts Pharmacist License

  1. I have passed the FPGEE but I don’t know how to find a place to perform the 1500 hours internship that is required ( preferable in Boston MA). I don’t live in the US and I even don’t know what kind of visa I should have.

    Thank you for your help

    Best Regards
