A CV must present you in the best possible way and attract the medical employer's interest in your qualifications, experience, personality. Try to encourage the medical recruiter to invite you for an interview.
Remember a few important features that a well-prepared medical CV should include:
- Include key points about your professional experience and education. Everything should be written in a clear and legible manner.
- A medical CV must be precise and contain easily understandable information.
- Present only the information relevant to the medical employer or position.
- A medical CV is a formal document so it must look professional - print on white paper.
- If you include a picture, make sure it's a good quality photo, dress professionally and position it in one of the upper corners.
- In some countries, not having a picture may discourage a potential medical employer.
- Remember, in the USA, pictures are NOT added to a medical CV.
- Write your medical CV on a computer, use the same font throughout.
- It is important to tailor your medical resume to a specific job advertisement.
- The more professional your medical CV, the more attractive it will be to medical employers and the more likely it is that they will contact you.
