Just in case Jamaica is absolutely the most fabulous place anywhere...

I thought I would look into getting registered to practice pharmacy in Jamaica.

(If you want to read a similar story about the Hawaiian Boards, click here.)

Unfortunately, the people of Jamaica do not appear to be actively seeking American Pharmacists. Here is all the information from the Pharmacy Council of Jamaica website under the link "Policy for the Registration of Foreign Trained Pharmacists".

It would appear there are not very many pharmacists in Jamaica. In California, you can go to the Board of Pharmacy Website and search by name and/or license number to find a specific pharmacist (I'm number 52 thousand and something). Things are simpler in Jamaica. Click here to see the 25 pharmacists with last names starting with A. Half of them are named Allen, and half Anderson. Are those common names in Jamaica, or are there two competing pharmacy dynasties?

Anyway, in case I don't get another post in before Friday, I'll be in:


I thought Jamaica was 3 hours ahead of us. I suppose there is no need for Daylight Saving Time in the Carribean.
