Dear Ms. Pearl Wayt,
I have a real interest in the Ophthalmic Assistant position available with Cheshire Medical Center.
I have completed a certified ophthalmic assistant program and my studies centered on diagnostic testing, anatomy and physiology, ophthalmic procedures and medical terminology. I am also very familiar with the equipment used in this profession.
I am a fast learner, with the ability to fine-tune my skills while on the job. I have the ability to obtain patient medical records, a list of the medications they use and all other relevant information to ensure patients receive the very best care possible. I have great problem solving and critical thinking skills, so I can act fast and make good choices.
I have an energetic personality with great people skills, so I have the ability to help create a comfortable environment where the patients can relax and know they are in good hands. I also have strong communication skills with the ability to relay information between the ophthalmologist and the patients efficiently.
I am team oriented and I have the ability to follow directions completely. I can assist the ophthalmologist with the vision tests or conduct them under his/her supervision. I also have the ability to keep detailed records of all patient visits. I am very excited about the possibility of working with you and I am confident that I have the skills and ability to be a great asset to your office.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with you soon to discuss this position in person.
