Dear Doctor Gambardella,
Please accept this letter and the enclosed documents as application for an internship position. My primary
motive for a small animal internship is to expand my educational experience with an intense training period in a
high volume referral center, where I can build both my knowledge base and clinical skills. I know this to be a
needed precursor to my next planned step of obtaining a small animal surgical residency.
During my ten day externship at the Oradell Animal Hospital in September 2008, (indeed, a brief
opportunity to observe each other) I was duly impressed with the pragmatic professionalism of the practice and
staff, the volume and diversity of cases, and the well supported structure and learning environment provided to the
interns. I am most interested in continuing my development as an intern and contributing member of the team at
Oradell Animal Hospital.
My resumé cites a strong equine background. If, when I entered veterinary school, I was asked my
intentions, surely my response would have been equine medicine. However, never wanting to close my eyes to
possible alternate paths, I saw my true interest is really the diagnostic and treatment challenges of private practice.
Perhaps, four years ago, I was merely romanced by a particular species. With this in mind, I have turned my sights
toward a small animal focus because it allows more opportunity for specialization and practice diversity. In
addition to my medical/surgical interests and education, the customer-relations experience I bring as a mature and
seasoned service provider should facilitate my rapid acclimation to the breadth of clients seen in a practice such as
yours. My additional knowledge of office systems, operations, organizational management, and the Cornerstone
practice management software system will also allow me to function efficiently in a high volume and, at times,
high stress environment.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you again. Of course, I will
gladly forward any additional information at the asking.
