Dear Dr Cresswell

RE: PGY3 Resident Medical Officer Positions

I wish to apply for the position of PGY3 Resident Medical Officer as advertised on Please find my resume attached.

I am an MBBS graduate coming up to the end of my PGY2 year at Camden Hospital. During my residency I worked in orthopedic surgery, geriatrics, endocrinology and respiratory. During my intern year I worked in cardiology, emergency, colorectal surgery, renal medicine and relief. I have had experience being on call, doing shift work, have also had placements at rural hospitals which have shown me a different medical environment.

Throughout my PGY1 and PGY2 years and during previous placements I have attended rounds, journal club, multi-disciplinary meetings, all teaching sessions and have taken the opportunities to do extra research. My strong interpersonal and communication skills have been used while treating patents and helping medical students with practical skills such as cannulation and venepuncture.

I am registered with the RACP and RACS and find it rewarding being part of a successful team that can make a real difference to people's lives.

If you require any more information please contact me on the phone numbers above. I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Dear Director Coulson,

As a highly skilled Medical Officer, I read your posting for a new Medical Officer with interest. My experience aligns well with the qualifications you are seeking at Mercy Hospital, in particular my role as a Medical Officer with Calnova Health Systems, and I am certain I would make a valuable addition to your organization.

With more than 10 years’ experience as a Medical Officer, I am adept in documentation, team leadership, and program implementation. Moreover, while my on-the-job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including first-rate interpersonal and communication skills, I excel at:

  • Improving compliance standards hospital-wide.
  • Overseeing special employee and patient care projects.
  • Conducting internal investigations of patient care practices.
  • Standardizing procedures by coordinating with department heads.

In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I have a solid educational foundation and a passion for team leadership. I am extremely enthusiastic about Mercy Hospital’s focus on patient care and would welcome the opportunity to contribute to your continued success.

Please review my attached resume for additional details regarding my expertise and career achievements. I will follow up to request an appointment to discuss how my experience and background meet your needs.
