Re: Medical Internship 2015
It is with great enthusiasm that I apply for the position of Intern at Bayside Health. I am in the final year
of Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery at Monash University and looking for the best possible start
for a successful medical career.
Bayside Health particularly interests me as it provides a broad range of clinical experiences, in conjunction
with a well organised teaching program. After speaking to colleagues and attending the Bayside Health
intern information session, I believe that the staff and facilities are excellent. As you will see in my results
and experiences, I am committed to giving my best to any situation, have a holistic approach and would
value the opportunity of working in a first class organisation like Bayside Health.
I can bring to the role strong team skills and effective communication skills. These have been honed
through interactions and presentations to a range of audiences, most recently at the Australian Medical
Student Association (AMSA) and as an ambassador for the Monash Medical Conference at Sunway
campus, Malaysia. My academic achievements and voluntary involvement in Lifeline and the Big
Brother/Big Sister programs are indicative of my commitment to all aspects of healthcare.
My experience at The Alfred, as both a student and a ward clerk, has given me the opportunity to develop
my clinical skills including patient assessment and management and receive constructive feedback on my
progression. Research into endocrinology is of particular interest to me as it is my aspiration to work in
either diabetes or inflammatory diseases in the future.
In support of my application I have attached a resume providing a summary of my relevant experience.
Referees and results are available through the PMVC system.
It would be my absolute pleasure to work at Bayside Health and I believe I have the potential to be a
valuable member of the hospital team. I look forward to discussing my application further at interview.
