Dear Mr. Johnson,
Your job opening for an administrative medical assistant caught my attention because my goal is to have a position in the administrative department of Alliance Health. Both my clinical experience and academic training make me an ideal candidate for this position.
When I started out in the medical assisting field at a local nursing home, I just had the facility’s training program for new recruits. I gained experience in relating positively with patients, and I learned from nurses about the basic functions that an assistant performs in a long-term care setting.
I later took a position with Alliance Health in a pediatric clinical setting while enrolled in the registered medical assistant program at a local community college. This has taught me how to communicate with a variety of other medical personnel, parents, and their children, sometimes all at once. Through my academics and my experience I have been exposed to and have become familiar with a variety of medical codes and coding procedures.
My experience so far with medical records makes me excited to apply for this administrative medical assistant position. I appreciate your consideration and am looking forward to discussing this position with you in the future.
