Physician Assistant Cover Letter Sample

physician assistant cover letter

Physician Assistant cover letters should contain prior education and work experience which is relative to medicine. A PA (Physician Assistant) is someone who is educated to be able to practice medicine within the U.S. They are a junior position worker alongside the main Physician. If you can, lean into your certifications such as your Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE) and your PA-C (Physician Assistant-Certified).

If you can, lean into these soft skills: technical skills, coordination skills, communication skills, interpersonal skills, analytical skills, and research skills.

Physician Assistant

Dear Mr. Johnson —

After receiving my PA-C, I went to a hospital setting. There is where I really learned to love and hate medicine. While for the most part I love it, because I am caring for others. And I get to see their progress on a daily basis when I commit my mind to their troubles. I hate it as well because I see these patients depart and leave. And that happens when I feel most connected with them. But it is part of the role. That's why as a Physician Assistant I've been able to:

Physician Assistant-Certified practitioner with previous hospital and private facilities.
Ability to be analytical, interpersonal, and technical when required.
Able to work alongside other PA's as well as Physicians within a hospital setting if required.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
