Dear Mr. Bradshaw:
I am writing to you in response to the recently advertised opening for the position of hospitalist in your institution.
I feel fortunate to have trained in a busy city hospital in New York, which has given me a very rich experience in providing health care to patients from all walks of life. Throughout this experience, I have developed a keen interest in acute care and have grown quite comfortable caring for patients in the acute care setting, in particular. I believe that my growth as a physician will carry on once I become integral to a dynamic group, such as yours, where providing quality health care equally to all individuals in need is paramount. As well, I am looking forward to exploring a new life in your community where both traditions and potential for growth abound.
My years of experience in internal medicine, which extends from my residency training in my native country to my three years of training in Metropolitan Hospital, has allowed me to understand better the needs of patients from various cultures and ethnic backgrounds. In addition, my ability to speak five languages has provided me with a sense of reaching out and given me the ability to meet their needs more effectively.
I believe that my experience working as a team player in a setting beset with the stresses and strains of residency training has prepared me well. Constantly admitting patients in the emergency room, working long hours in the wards, looking after critically ill patients in the ICU, while looking for answers to improve patient care by continuously engaging in clinical research, have taught me how to multi-task without losing sight of my goals for the end of the day. With these to offer, I am confident that you will find favor in working with me in providing care to the patients in your community.
I am looking forward to working with you and serving in your community. I am available to arrange for an interview at a mutually convenient time. Please find enclosed my resume showing my education, experience and background.
