Dear Mr. Oliver:

The advertisement for the position of a Medical Transcriptionist at the Health Facility, which you placed in The Independent, piqued my interest immensely. With my strong background in medicine along with exceptional listening and typing skills, I am confident that I am the right candidate for this position.

I have a special talent for providing surgical, cytology and autopsy pathology transcription and possess some knowledge of compiling pathology QA monitors. Having working knowledge of medical transcription practices along with expertise in operating dictation and transcription equipment, I deem myself well suited for this job. Other reasons that make me fit for this job include; basic knowledge of medical terminology, anatomy and laboratory tests which minimize the chances of errors in my transcriptions.

I will be in Oshkosh for the next week after which I may not be available for an interview for about ten days. I will call your office to ask if we can set a meeting time during the week and can be contacted at (901) 999-9999 if you would like to set a meeting later.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
