Pharmacy Intern Cover Letter Sample

Updated September 29, 2018

On-the-job training or internship is the best kind of hands-on experience as it provides people with a chance to see how a particular work is done in a real-time environment. Many pharmacies in the USA employ pharmacy interns to learn this craft by providing them with a setting where they can learn the trade and earn college hours.

Pharmacy interns perform essential tasks by assisting pharmacists in serving customers; filling out prescriptions, rotating stock and managing inventory are their prime duties.

Pharmacy interns need to write compelling cover letters to acquire work at these positions.

If you are writing a cover letter for a pharmacy intern resume, you will need to provide information on your skills on dispensing medication and managing pharmacy operations along with any professional memberships you may have and any related certifications.

Mr. Samuel James
Manager Human Resources
ABC Diagnostics
366 Berry Street
Fitchburg, MA 93000


Dear Mr. James:

I was intrigued by the description of the Pharmacy Intern position at ABC Diagnostics, as advertised on your website yesterday. As a senior pharmacy student at the Skaggs College, I would like to utilize my transferable skills to work effectively for ABC Diagnostics. I also possess a pharmacy internship license and an immunization delivery certificate which makes me a strong candidate for this position.

I have in-depth knowledge of assisting pharmacists efficiently by serving customers while dispensing medication appropriately. Providing better counseling to patients is my prime focus at the moment as far as learning on-the-job is concerned. Additionally, I am well versed in managing stock, taking orders and verifying medications per delivery receipts.

My knowledge does not end here; I am uniquely qualified in preparing compounding medication by using pharmacy scales and compound pads and preparing IV admixtures which add to your eligibility requirements.

I have enclosed my resume for your perusal and would like to discuss my qualifications with you at an interview. The prospect of participating in this pharmacy internship opportunity is very thrilling, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
