Tips and Guidelines

When writing a cover letter for a physiotherapist resume, don’t forget to:

➜ Customize your background for a Physiotherapist job by summarizing the skills, qualifications and experiences relevant to a physio opportunity.

➜ Demonstrate your skills in clinical assessments, goals setting and providing treatment plans for clients.

➜ Convey your enthusiasm, professionalism and interest in the Physiotherapist position.

Please note that there is no need mention the source and date of advertisement in a Physiotherapist cover letter as it is useless for employer.

Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation
254 North Street
Hamilton, ON D8C 6X8


Dear Ms. Lee:

I am very enthusiastic to work for Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation as a physiotherapist. Your position demands the expertise, qualifications, and work ethic that I have developed as a physiotherapist in my previous jobs. I am eager to leverage my capabilities and experience to contribute to your bottom line.

Based on my understanding of your physiotherapist position and your facility, here are the aspects of my background that seem most appropriate to meet your requirements:

• Expert in assessing patients’ physical abilities through evaluative procedures and functional ability tests
• Hands-on experience in olanning and implementing programs of physiotherapy; healing exercise, massage, instructions, manipulations, the use of electro-therapeutic and additional mechanical equipment and hydro-therapy
• Adept at establishing treatment goals with patients based on physical diagnoses
• Well versed in evaluating usefulness of treatment plans and adjust accordingly

As an experienced physiotherapist, I’d welcome the chance to meet with you to discuss how my qualifications, experience and skills would be beneficial for Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation. I will call you next week to follow-up and set a meeting time that will best match your timetable. Meanwhile, I can be reached at (999) 999-3335.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincerely yours,

Sara Smith
