Dear Program Director,

I am currently a PGY-3 Diagnostic Radiology resident at Hemet Global Medical Center, an ACGME accredited program located in Hemet, CA. I am looking for an available R3 position that would begin in the academic year of July 2021. My desire to transfer programs relates to my husband having difficulty finding senior IT job opportunities in our current area. If given the opportunity, we would also like to move closer to family in the Midwest and South.

I have already learned so much from my program and I am very passionate about completing my education to pursue a career in Radiology. If an R3 position becomes available, we would be happy to relocate to any area in order for me to achieve that goal. I look forward to sharing my CV, board scores, medical school transcripts and letters of recommendation from my current program if you would like to learn more about me. Please contact me at rubiomace@gmail.com for more information. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Best Regards,

To whom it may concern:

I am interested in an R1 Diagnostic Radiology Residency position, to begin July 2021 or 2022. Currently I am the Chief Resident of the Nuclear Medicine Residency Program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, NY, with an expected graduation date of June 2021. It is my foremost goal to become board certified in both Nuclear Medicine and Radiology.

Briefly, I was born and raised in Idaho, attended medical school at Pacific Northwest University in Washington state (graduating May 2017), and I completed a transitional year internship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Altoona campus, in 2018. I passed COMLEX Levels 1, 2 CE and PE, and 3.

During my Nuclear Medicine training, I have engaged in numerous research projects within the department. I have presented multiple posters, educational exhibits, and oral presentations at many radiological conferences including RSNA and ARRS. I have also been fortunate enough to train at a hospital that is at the forefront of novel Nuclear Medicine therapies in the United States. I have been privileged enough to learn from some of the brightest minds in Nuclear Medicine and Radiology during my time at Mount Sinai and I now wish to continue my Radiology training.

I can send you copies of my CV, medical school transcript, MSPE letter, board scores, and letters of recommendation at your request.

Dear Program Directors, 

My name is Mohamad Asfour and I am a 4th-year medical student out of LECOM in Bradenton who will be beginning my Transitional Year at HCA /USF Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville, FL. I am seeking a PGY-2/R1 position for July 2022. 

My passion for radiology has been brewing for a long time. In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, I was able to get some extremely valuable impressions of the field. Radiologists are extremely essential as they must be well-versed in all areas of medicine and be able to convey treatment options to nearly every specialty. For these reasons and many more, I feel radiology is the only specialty for me. 

I am an extremely hardworking and determined individual that will prove to be a great asset to your program. Despite many hurdles, I have competitive USMLE scores, multiple publications and presentations, and am even working on a Master's degree at the same time. 

I am available to discuss my CV/application in further detail at any time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Dear Program Directors,

I have completed a PGY-3 Diagnostic Radiology Residency in June 2019. Due to some medical and family reasons, I left my radiology program. Later on, I started a T32 research job in radiology at JHU. I am now looking for a PGY-4 (R3) position starting in July 2021. I am able to take an independent radiology ER call. I have been studying for the radiology course since I left the radiology program. Please let me know if your program has any current or potential radiology positions available with the July 2021 start date. If you want me to start a few months earlier, I can do so as well as my current job is flexible. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dear Program Directors,

My name is David Zezoff, and I am a PGY-1 completing my Transitional Year at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, CA. I am seeking a PGY-2/R1 position for July 2021.

I was able to rotate in radiology late in my fourth year of medical school and realized the inadequate exposure I had with the field. I had previously underestimated the scope and knowledge the radiologist brings to clinical decision making. Watching the radiologist review a wide variety of images while advising colleagues with direct clinical implications, revealed the critical role a radiologist plays with patient care. Having already applied to anesthesia, it was far too late to apply to radiology. After realizing the field of radiology is a better fit for me, I am pursuing a PGY2/R1 position for July 2021.

I attended medical school in Southern California, graduating in the first quartile of my class in May 2020. I have passed USMLE Step 1, 2, COMLEX Levels 1, 2 CE and PE, and plan on taking COMLEX Level 3 in September. I have passed all these examinations with above national average marks (P/F for PE). My passion in academics has been mentorship, and it is something I have displayed at each level of my scholastic career. In building a stronger application, I’ve already been conducting a QI project and had two publications with PubMed at my transitional year program at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Stockton, California.

I am available and free to discuss my CV/application in further detail and I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Radiology Program Directors, 

My name is Anthony Chuprin and I am seeking an R2 position in NYC or the surrounding North-East for July 2021, perhaps sooner if available. 

I am currently at Mayo Clinic Florida in good standing and excited for my early radiology career. Very unfortunately I have had two immediate family members fall ill, one earlier this year and another currently undergoing diagnostication at the time of this post. As the only healthcare professional in my family, I am therefore seeking to transfer and be closer to them. 

My program faculty have been immensely supportive since I approached them with my considerations and have offered to provide letters of recommendation and good standing. It goes without saying, Mayo is an incredible place that I'm very lucky to be at however family is irreplaceable. 

Please let me know by email, phone or text if you would further consider my application.

Thank you for your consideration,

Anthony Chuprin, M.D.
