Dear Mr. Johnson —

I'm eager to be meeting you regarding your Physician opening. I am passionate about medicine because as a young child I was very ill. I was suffering from an autoimmune issue. And it was only thanks to one significant doctor that was able to treat me where I was able to overcome this pain in my life. Ever since then, I've wanted to become a Physician.

During my tenure as a previous Assistant Physician I was able to:

Passed my medical degree with a 3.8 GPA, Magna Cum Laude.
Have had more than 12,000 hours on a Hospital staff and primary care in the ER.
Able to manage multiple patients and coordinate with other medical staff professionals to provide incredible care to our patients.

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.

Sincerely,
Ian Smith
