Dear Ms. Blackwood,

I recently saw the posting for a Surgeon on the Lenox Hill Hospital web site, and I am very interested in becoming a member of your plastic surgery team. Please consider this letter and the accompanying curriculum vitae as my application for the posting. After reading through my academic and professional history, I am sure you will agree I am a highly qualified candidate. My most recent experience, in particular will be a perfect fit for your plastic surgery department.

I completed my medical degree at Ashford University and my residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. During my surgical fellowship, I concentrated on breast reconstruction. I then took a posting in the women’s health department of Halifax Regional Hospital where many patients required reconstructive plastic surgery following treatment for breast cancer.

For the past three years, I have been a member of the wound healing research team at UMass Medical School, where I have also completed my own postgraduate training in cell biology and tissue engineering. In addition to my laboratory duties, I take part in clinical assessments and interventions of outpatients enrolled in clinical research trials. I am responsible for maintaining medical charts and recording trial data. I also participate in teaching and evaluation of medical students, and in the publication of academic papers.

Please accept my thanks for affording me this opportunity to present my credentials. I look forward to discussing them with you at greater length in the near future. I can be reached at (123)-425-3615, at your convenience.


Your Signature

Dennis Gillham
