As a pharmacist, there are many reasons why you may have to quit your job, such as relocation, personal life issues, or your own health. You should take the earliest opportunity to write a formal pharmacist resignation letter and send it in to your employers. They will need to find someone else to replace you as soon as possible, so this is a good way to ensure that they are aware of your intentions and know that you do not wish to cause them any undue inconvenience.
Format and Content
Correct spelling and grammar is essential to any letter, but especially important in a professional pharmacist resignation letter format. Open by letting your boss know that you will be leaving, and when. It is acceptable to cite your reasons for quitting, if desired. If you are willing and able to help train someone to take over for you, be sure to communicate this clearly along with your contact details for further discussion. Sincerely thank your boss for his or her cooperation, and the experience you were able to earn at the job. After signing the letter professionally, try to send in a copy to your boss with at least two weeks’ notice before your last day of work.
