Dear Dr. Zylomire:
I write with interest for consideration to join your team for the opportunity to further utilize my education and professional experience as a Practice Administrator at Wigginton Urgent Care and Family Practice. Throughout my experience as a Practice Administrator, for leading cardiology and medical specialty groups, I have skillfully grown in my profession. My professional contributions to a team of practice administrators and healthcare professionals have further validated my commitment to work collectively and not only enhance day-to-day obligations, but to also establish strategic team building opportunities. My career in the field of Practice Administrator began when I was given the opportunity to complete a 3 month internship at Pathway Cardiology. I was able to build determination and a positive reputation that lead to my ability to make an affirmative contribution to the practice group’s morale and revenue with my strong dedication and leadership skills. My internship gave me the insight to the dynamic opportunity to be able to make a positive change in healthcare. The guidance and support I received from my internship inspired me to further enhance my skills as a Practice Administrator.
Hence, my passion for healthcare and specifically Practice Administration grew as I joined Pathway Cardiology. The experience I gained in all aspects of my job in IT, management, communication skills, and operation duties validates my passion and characteristic of exceptional Practice Administrator. Leading a team of professionals to successfully meet and exceed team goals and improve satisfaction ratings was a tremendous success for me. I was able to motivate and encourage the team to initiate changes by implementing incentive programs, leading to successful outcomes.
My strong contributions at Pathway Cardiology lead to my current position at Cardiology Specialists where I work with a larger physician group. Creating a strategic plan to increase internal revenue was a tremendous accomplishment for my team and I. Hence, my ability to prioritize, plan, and strategize the success of the practice and my team will be a positive asset to Wigginton Urgent Care and Family Practice.
With the commitment to establish a long-lasting career in Practice Administration, I believe my skills and qualifications compliment your company’s expectations. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Should you require any additional information, please feel free to contact me by phone: 803-299-4444 or email: [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
