Dear Hiring Manager,

As a medical researcher and medical coder with 15 years of experience in the medical training field, I am always on the lookout for companies who are involved in innovative and engaging work. I have been a great admirer of Baylor Scott & White Health since 1997, and I am thrilled to apply for the medical coder, medical researcher, and medical training position at your company.

Since 1992, I have been at the forefront of medical science, helping to shape design of innovative medical research products and medical coding of charts. In the last 20 years, I have led medically trained staff in an immediate increase in production. Running a department has taught me to be disciplined, organized and a self-starter when it comes to designing projects and meeting deadlines. At Karolinksa Institutet, I was a medical researcher that always met deadlines and accomplished goals including the development of a method to measure lens ascorbate concentration utilizing ultrafiltration and high pressure liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection. At Mesa Hills Specialty Hospital, I was a medical coder who worked efficiently and successfully on charts and quality data analysis and met deadlines on time.

Your recent medical training articles, Baylor Scott & White Health, was the impetus for my exploration of medical genetics testing. I have researched inherited eye disorders extensively and implemented the results into medical science as a result of medical genetics testing’s feature. I believe that my experience and proven track record in innovative solutions make me the perfect fit for this position.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
