•  This is used to express interest in a position. It can initially be drafted as a general letter and adjustments can be made depending on the specific institution to which it is being sent.

    A formal cover letter is a must when you are initially inquiring about a position opening. This can be included in the body of an email or as a separate attachment with your CV.

    Length: about three short paragraphs indicating your interest in the position and a little about yourself and your practice interests (i.e., Neuro, MSK, pain, EDX, inpatient/outpatient, etc.).

    It should be clear, concise and fit on one page.
