I feel that a meeting would benefit your institution as well as your students.
I would enjoy discussing this position with you in the weeks to come.
In the meantime, I am enclosing my curriculum vitae.
As a life-long learner with an insatiable desire to learn and improve, I chose to accept the challenge of becoming a trainee once again and joined the nephrology fellowship program at the University of Florida at Gainesville, which I will complete in June 20xx.
I believe that the internist in me has made me a much better nephrologist and vice versa.
I know that my education and background in nursing would be a welcome addition to your institution.
I take great pride in teaching and knowing that the students are learning everything that they need to know to move forward in their careers.I completed my Internal Medicine Residency in 20xx, and Chief Residency in 20xx at Cook (Stroger) County Hospital.Among many things, that chief year definitely strengthened my leadership, administrative and teaching skills.Below are some highlights of what I believe I can bring to your program: I was selected as director of recruitment for the medicine residency program at Cook County Hospital; one of the largest programs in the country, with over 140 medical residents and close to 5,000 residency applications yearly.I have acquired a vast knowledge of the training programs offered by many medical schools around the world, including grading systems, decoding their letters of recommendation, as well as dean’s letters.Through that experience, I believe I now have the skills necessary to get the learner interested and motivated to learn.In summary, I believe I have found my true academic identity.One of my favorite courses that I have ever taught is the pathophysiology course for the second year medical students at Benson Medical College.Rather than simply lecturing, I always worked hard to cultivate an interactive environment in which students and residents could express themselves freely.I am a clinician-educator who loves to take care of patients but at the same time, I have discovered that I have a mission and the ability to teach and mentor younger students and trainees to become better future physicians.I believe that having the chance to join your faculty and help in building a premier medical school is an exciting and challenging once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
