Application for the position of Medical Intern Dear Sir/Madam, Please accept my
application for the Medical Internship within Brando Hospital in High River,
Canada as I believe that the combination of my previous experience, field
education, and developed skills set makes me a perfect candidate for the role.
Moreover, if given the opportunity, I will be coming to you with a pro-active
approach, an excellent work ethic, and a strong determination to meet all your
goals and expectations. As stated in my enclosed resume, I am a third-year
Medicine student at the Swansea University, where I am among the top 2% of
students with the best academic results. On top of academia, I also participate in
multiple extracurricular activities, for instance, Medical Society, Psychology
Society, and Riding Club. The involvement in these activities has helped me to
become an effective team player and taught me how to work with people from
various countries, cultures, and backgrounds. As a part of my studies, I also
served as a Medical & Health Volunteer in Ethiopia for three months. This
tremendous experience has allowed me to work with various field professionals
and experts and gave me a great opportunity to focus more on helping others.
Additionally, I worked as a Medical Intern at High River General Hospital for more
than four months. There, I was mainly in charge of communicating with patients,
scheduling appointments, and maintaining and organizing confidential files and
records. Besides that, I assisted in the patients' assessments, collected their
blood pressure and temperature, and prepared examination rooms. For
constantly executing perfect work, I was awarded Intern of the Month. Last but
not least, I am a native Portuguese speaker with a proficiency in English and a
basic knowledge of Chinese. Offering a strong attention to detail and accuracy,
great manual dexterity and physical stamina, and the ability to remain calm under
pressure, I am certain the I would execute the role successfully. Thank you for
your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing back from you in the
near future. Kind regards, Sofia Lima
