Re: Physician Assistant, advertised on Monster
Dear Mr. Grant:
I am excited to apply for the physician assistant position and have uploaded my résumé as requested. Earlier in my career, I completed a physician assistant externship at ABC Hospital under Dr. Shirley Jones, and knew I wanted to be part of your dedicated team.
I am a California-licensed and NCCPA-certified physician assistant with experience in Level II trauma centers and emergency departments. Throughout my 12-year healthcare career, I have earned exemplary ratings from patients, colleagues and supervisors for my clinical skills, quality of care, medical judgment and teamwork.
Deeply committed to providing efficient and high-quality care, I have diagnosed and treated diverse populations presenting a range of illnesses and injuries. I am skilled in conducting patient histories, physical exams and patient education, and have served on medical code and first-responder teams in life-or-death situations.
My background also includes service on committees focused on utilization management, clinical outcomes analysis, JCAHO readiness, HIPAA compliance and process improvement. I have participated in the planning and user training for enterprise EMR system rollouts and lean Six Sigma-based projects, resulting in recurring annual savings of $1.5M and gains to operational efficiencies, patient satisfaction and total cost-of-care value.
In addition to PA licensure, I hold active certifications in ACLS, PALS and ATLS and a master of medical science degree in physician assistant studies from XYZ University.
ABC Hospital’s reputation for providing the highest level of care to patients in a nurturing and team-oriented atmosphere appeals to me, and I am motivated to join your team. You may call me at (555) 555-5555 or email email@example.com to schedule an interview.
I look forward to meeting with you.
