Dear Dr Cresswell

RE: PGY3 Resident Medical Officer Positions

I wish to apply for the position of PGY3 Resident Medical Officer as advertised on 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.

Yours sincerely
