Dear Ms. Marie Coley,
I have a real interest in the position of Medical Clerk with The Aspen Group.
My experience, knowledge and personal skills match the requirements of this position and if chosen for the job, I will become a valuable member of your medical team. I have earned an associate’s degree in medical office assistant and my studies included courses in physiology, anatomy, database management, coding systems, clinical classification and medical terminology.
While earning my degree, I held a secretarial position with a medical center performing clerical duties such as answering phones, greeting patients, scheduling appointments, registering patients and keeping records updated. My experience includes extensive knowledge of multi-line telephone systems, microfiche, scanners and medical charting systems.
I possess a pleasant and welcoming demeanor with the ability to show compassion for patients dealing with difficult situations while still providing professional service. My strong communication skills make it possible to deal with difficult patients by helping them to understand that the staff will do everything possible to take care of their medical needs and it makes it possible to convey information with other professionals efficiently.
My personal skills include being detailed oriented, highly organized and computer savvy with knowledge of database user interface, accounting programs and query software. I have the ability to remain calm, focused and professional in this fast paced, high stress level environment and I understand and adhere to all legal and ethical standards.
You can contact me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with you soon to discuss the details of this job in person.
