Dear Ms. Tamara Hicks,
I am applying for the Athletic Therapist position at Merritt Athletic Club. My training and experience matches the requirements in your posting, which makes me an excellent candidate for this position.
I have my Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy and extensive knowledge in biology with a complete understanding of the musculoskeletal and the neuromuscular systems. I know how to operate the equipment used to diagnose and treat patients.
I have the ability to accurately diagnosis injuries and then create a plan to help client recover and I know when to refer athletes to other health providers to ensure full recovery. I can also accurately determine when it would be safe for patients to return to sports. After recovery, I can provide athletes with a preventive plan and techniques to help reduce the risk of future injuries.
I have excellent people skills, which is necessary to work in this profession since you need to listen to what the patients are saying in order to provide them with the best care. I also have compassion for the people I work with because I know how difficult it can be dealing with this type of injury on a personal level.
I am in great health and have the physical stamina and agility needed to keep up with the requirements of this job. I have excellent organizational skills, the ability to keep accurate records and I am licensed to practice as an Athletic Therapist.
You can reach me by calling (222)-663-2931 and I hope to meet with you in person soon.
