Dear Dr. Roberts:
Please accept my application for the Medical Assistant position advertised on Indeed.com on November 11, 2016. My resume is enclosed for your review.
I recently graduated from the Salter School's 900-hour Professional Medical Assistant Program. At Salter School, I was fully trained in clinical and administrative tasks so that I am ready to enter this healthcare profession. I successfully completed a 180-hour clinical externship at the practice of Dr. Bradford in Malden, MA. If you wish to review the evaluation I received from Dr. Bradford, I would be happy to provide it along with my transcript from the Salter School. I am enthusiastic about healthcare and providing comfortable environments for patients!
If you would be kind enough to grant me the opportunity to meet with you, I will answer any questions you may have of me.
I look forward to hearing from you, and will call you next Monday to ask if we may arrange a time to meet in person.
Thank you for your consideration.
