Dear Ms. Lois Anderson,

Please accept my application for the job of Ward Clerk, which was announced on your web site this week. I am a trained medical receptionist with excellent office administration skills and ten years’ experience in a busy inner city clinic. I work in a fast-paced environment, often on weekends or during the evening. I have a proven track record for demonstrating not only sound decision-making skills and time management, but also for handling conflicts and customer service issues with great tact and respect for patients. After reading through my resume, I am sure you will agree I am among the most qualified candidates for this posting.

I completed my office administration diploma at Manokotak School in 2002, after which I went on to study medical terminology and learned to use Meditech information systems. I type 65 wpm, and am an expert at transcribing physician’s orders. I have a strong work ethic, and a great respect for protocol and confidentiality. I believe as the first contact patients have with my employer, it is my job to present a professional impression right from the start and to do my utmost to put them at ease.

I would very much like to meet with you to discuss my credentials further. Could we set up a time to meet? I will be happy to provide you my references, and to give you any other information you need at that time. I can be reached at (222)-715-4070 days or evenings.
