Dear Mr. Shatner:

I came across Allied Health’s need of Medical Assistant and am applying for the same in anticipation of providing your organization with the benefit of my education, knowledge and skills. Following my BLS and Medical Assistant certifications, I have been aspiring to work with a dedicated healthcare facility where I could utilize my knowledge of administrative and clinical work in a professional environment.

As far as administrative duties are concerned, I am adept at filling admission forms and managing insurance information as well. With great work ethics and a demeanor in accordance to courtesy, I could communicate effectively with patients and their families. Moreover, my organizational skills dictate that I manage schedules in a structured manner.
