Cover Letter Examples For Students In University Internship Requirements

Mr. Oren Davidson
New York-Presbyterian Hospital
New York, NY

Dear Mr. Davidson,

I am writing to express my interest in the summer internship position within the Support Services and Patient Centered Care Department at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. I am currently a first year student at the Yale School of Public Health concentrating in Health Management. As part of my program, I have completed core public health courses as well as Accounting, Sourcing and Managing Funds, and Operations at the Yale School of Management.

My goal upon graduation next spring is to secure a fellowship in hospital administration. I believe that a summer internship at New York-Presbyterian will be invaluable in helping me develop a deeper understanding of the complex dynamics that drive the financing and delivery of care in a large academic medical center.

Prior to enrolling in graduate school, I worked for three years as the Director of Meeting Planning for the Pulmonary Hypertension Association. This position provided me with the opportunity to collaborate with doctors, allied health professionals and patients in developing educational programs that raised awareness about PH with the goal of earlier diagnosis, better disease management and improved patient prognosis. My experience in aligning the motivations of various stakeholders and executing projects in high-stress situations has helped me to foster a strong skill set that will translate well in a hospital operations role. I am eager to apply the lessons I’ve learned in project management to improving clinical quality and the patient experience within the hospital delivery system. 

I believe that the combination of my academic and professional experiences has provided me with the organizational, interpersonal and analytical skills that will enable me to make a significant contribution to the Support Services and Patient Centered Care Department at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Enclosed please find a copy of my resume, which provides additional information on my background and work experience. Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Beth Gerardi

Dear Mr. /Mrs. /Ms. (Manager’s Name),

I’m writing to you regarding the marketing role that opened up recently. I came across the job description on [Website Name], and was delighted to find that my academic accomplishments meet all of the necessary requirements. I am seeking a challenging but rewarding internship, which is why I was drawn to this exciting opportunity.

As a junior marketing student at the University of Georgia, I have acquired skills in advertising, PR, product development, and market research. Currently I hold a 3.8 GPA and have been on the Dean’s List every semester. While in the college of business I have strategically focused my coursework in the following areas:

  • Marketing Analytics
  • Marketing Management
  • Survey Research
  • Strategic Internet Marketing
  • Integrated Marketing Communications

Using my knowledge of the above, I designed a marketing campaign for a local pet grooming business that yielded the highest return on investment based on a budget. The campaign was so well received that I was awarded third place in UGA’s business plan competition.

I would be delighted to have an opportunity to personally interview with you. Please accept the enclosed resume and feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.  I appreciate your time and consideration.

Yours sincerely,

[Your Name]
