  1. Good afternoon sir. I just want to ask what if gusto ng magresign ng pharmacist sa isang drugstore sino pong kelangang maglakad ng papers for change of pharmacist? yung company na po ba?

  2. Yes, company na ang in-charge dun. Make sure lang na you have a copy of your resignation letter signed by your employer. Gawa ka din ng letter to BFAD na ng resign ka na with that particular company, again signed by you and noted by your employer. Kakailanganin mo yun pag na employ ka sa ibang company na gamit lisensya mo. You will then forward a copy of that to BFAD para aware sila na hindi ka na affiliated sa previous company and you are free to work sa bago. If you need a sample letter to BFAD just email me (see contact info page). Thanks.

  3. hi, good pm. kapapasa ko lang po ng board exam. so ibig sabihin po, required po ako umatend ng FDA accredited seminar on Licensing of Drug Establishment and Outlets bago ako makapagwork as community pharmacy? thank you po.

  4. Kung nag-work ka in any Drug Establishment or Outlet, Yes you need to attend FDA accredited seminar. But the company will pay for it. If you want to have it before you apply for job, that's fine. Points mo din yun sa employer, kung baga kasama na yun sa credentials mo bago ka pa i-hire ng any company at pampaganda ng resume. Yun nga lang ikaw ang mag shoulder ng expenses. Since hindi din naman ito requirement ng ibang company, ok lang din na you acquire first a job before taking FDA seminar. There's so many things to learn there and they will provide you copies of important RA and Laws.

  5. pwede bang humingi ng sample letter to bfad na nag exit na ako sa dati kong company.thank u

  6. Sure no problem. Just let me know where to send it. You can email me privately at info@pinoypharmacists.com

  7. patulong naman po. kailangan ko daw po kasi gumawa ng promissory letter kasi hindi pa ako nakaka attend ng seminar. e nung tumawag po ako, wala pa daw po silang sked kung kailan ung next. mag start na po kasi ako mag work sa community. patulong naman po gumawa ng letter. thanks!

  8. I sent a private message to you including the sample letter. Please check your email.

  9. Sir, good day. May I also ask for a copy of the promissory letter? I believe I have e-mailed you already. Thank you so much.

  10. Hi,good day.pwd po bang humingi ng sample letter to bfad na nag exit na ako sa dati kong company.thank u

  11. so ung change of pharmacist po ay aasikasuhin ng owner ng drugstore? hindi po ung incoming pharmacist? tnx po.

  12. The incoming pharmacist or owner can do that. Pero mas maganda na yung incoming pharmacist na ang gumawa nun. Just have everything ready, signed by the owner, and notarized.
