Dear Mr. Hobart,
I am submitting my resume for the position of Biomedical Engineer. With a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from one of the country’s top biomedical engineering programs, two years of experience gained through a rigorous internship, excellent analytical, design, and engineering skills and a knack for working with cross-functional teams, I believe I’d be a valuable asset to HeartTech.
My professional experience includes maintaining, updating and repairing biomedical equipment, designing new and groundbreaking biomedical equipment, train medical personnel to properly use biomedical equipment and working with scientists, healthcare professionals and fellow engineers to design and realize the best possible products. Over the course of my career, I have learned that being able to communicate and truly understand the needs of patients is just as important to success in the field of biomedical engineering as a passion for biology and an analytical mindset.
Here are a few highlights of my qualifications and experience:
Earned a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from the University of California, San Diego
Completed a 2-year internship at Spitzer Health
Designed and engineered several cutting-edge pieces of biomedical equipment
Worked to incorporate the feedback of both patients and industry professionals into the ideation process
Assisted in the training of dozens of Spitzer Health personnel in the proper use of equipment
Maintained the equipment of several separate medical facilities
I hope to be able to use my skills and experience to create new and life-saving biomedical equipment as a part of the HeartTech team.
Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to discussing this position with you further.
