Dear Mr. Griffin,

It is with great pleasure that I submit my application for the advertised position of Pharmacist on [URL] at the [Pharmacy Store] in Huntington, West Virginia. As a registered pharmacist who has recently moved to Huntington, I am very excited at the prospect of working for this reputable store. In this cover letter, I will elaborate on my motivation and ability to add value to your healthcare team.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [Laura Sanders] and I have two years of experience as a pharmacist at [Pharma Store X] in Modesto, California. I heard about [Pharmacy Store] during the CSHP Seminar. One of the interesting developments is your involvement in the growth of a discipline, also known as pharmacogenomics. I am convinced that individually-tailored drug therapies are effective in treating diseases. I would love to be part of major innovations in medication therapy.

In the vacancy, you describe the ideal candidate as someone who requires very little training and supervision. After accurately processing more than 27,000 monthly prescriptions while counseling patients on prescription and OTC medications, I am convinced that my profile matches. During my employment at [Pharma Store], I trained five junior pharmacist technicians, caught prescription errors and managed to maintain a consistent 97% positive feedback in a customer satisfaction survey. In 2020, I was praised by management for developing successful relationships with not only patients, but also doctors, medical staff and insurance companies.

I am eager to further discuss my candidacy and potential contribution to [Pharmacy Store’s] daily operations. Thank you for taking the time to review my cover letter and attached resume. If you need any additional information, please contact me at [(000)-000-0000] or [Email Address]. 

Best regards,

Laura Sanders
