Dear Dr Cresswell
RE: PGY3 Resident Medical Officer Positions
I wish to apply for the position of PGY3 Resident Medical Officer as advertised on seek.com.au. 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.

Dear Summer Internship Coordinator:
I am writing to express my interest in the summer internship the position in the Child Nutrition Policy Analysis division at the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC). I am a first year Master’s student at the Yale School of Public Health concentrating in Social and Behavioral Sciences. My goal upon graduation is to work in the field of nutrition policy, and an internship at FRAC would allow me to build new skills and network with experts in the field.
Prior to entering Yale I worked at the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity where I contributed to important research and advocacy efforts. One of the accomplishments I am most proud of was the development and coordination of a project examining the cost-effectiveness of non-food and food fundraisers in Connecticut schools. In addition, I supported the New Haven Food Policy Council by researching, creating informational and strategic documents, and drafting a food policy for the City of New Haven.
Through coursework at Yale I have been immersed in policy evaluation and analysis. For example, as part of a recent practicum experience I collaborated with the New Haven School Wellness Committee to evaluate the implementation of school wellness policies. I was introduced to the rigor and methods of evaluation and was fortunate to be invited to present my project at the most recent annual meeting of the American Public Health Association. Additionally, I completed a policy analysis exploring Food and Drug Administration reform legislation currently circulating in Congress.
I am passionate about food policy issues and would love the opportunity to contribute to the important work at FRAC as a summer intern. Thank you for considering my application.
