    I am a recent pharmacy grad from Canada. Here are my list of questions, please help me out:

    What licensing exams (and what time in the year) do you need to take in order to practice as a pharmacist in California after graduating with a Canadian Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree?

    Do you need to complete certain number of internship hours in U.S. prior to writing the licensing exam?

    Also, would the licensing process be easier, or faster, if I obtain a Canadian pharmacist license first , as opposed to starting in U.S. as a pharmacy grad?

    Thank you in advance!
