Dear Ms. Kirby:

Please accept my resume, which I am sending in response to your ad for a Medical Social Worker for your facility. I offer several years of experience in the social work field and a diverse skill set that would prove to be an asset to your organization.

Ten years as a Medical Social Worker has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of HIPAA and other healthcare regulations at both the federal and state levels. This knowledge has been beneficial during my interactions with patients, families, medical staff and fellow social workers, as I have ensured patient confidentiality and privacy in all cases.

Using effective listening and problem-solving skills, I am adept at fostering strong patient relationships that have enabled me to provide the best care to patients in various medical environments. Also, I have used my communication and interpersonal skills to build professional relationships with medical equipment vendors, counselors, case managers, state health agencies and others involved in continuing health care for mental health patients.

I have provided some of my career highlights and qualifications that I feel best demonstrate my ability to assume the position you are offering:

Coordinated all home care plans for discharged patients for Landry Medical Center

Oversaw patient psychosocial evaluations and developed individualized social service plans for Graze Hospital

Organized patient care conferences to educate doctors, nurses and other health professionals in the social and emotional impact of illness on patients and families for Lambert Hospital

Awarded Master of Social Work from New York University


My ability to collaborate with people of diverse backgrounds to reach each patient’s health care goal is one of my strongest assets. I will continue to use my organizational, communication and managerial skills and my knowledge of healthcare evaluation and discharge procedures to make certain that each patient of your facility receives the continuing care to meet their specific needs.

I look forward to speaking with you in person about this position.

Thank you for your consideration.
