Dear Sir or Madam,
I would like to apply for a clinical clerkship at your hospital during summer 2005. My area of interst is paediatrics, gynacology and infectious diseases. I prefer to work in peadiatrics if that is possible
My name is ------ and I come from -------. I am a 4th year medical student at Medical Faculty of -------. The clinical subjects that I listened to during the last four years were: physical examination of patients, infectious diseases, hygiene, social medicine, pharmacology, dermatology and venerology, neurology, psychiatry, internal medicine and surgery along with all the preclinical subjects.
In future I am considering to specialize in peadiatrics, although my decision is not yet final. The reason why I would like be a peadiatrician is because I enjoy working with children and last but not least the diversity of work itself.
Until now I have not had much experince in working with children, so this clerkship is a good oppurtunity for me to get the practical skills and of course the theoretical knowledge. Although I will be limited only to English, I can help with physical examination and maybe partially even with history taking. I expect to learn a lot from clinical staff at your hospital also being present at rounds and at different medical procedures.
As I have never been to Czech Republic before, therefore coming to your country would be a completely new experience for me on all levels. I would like not just to get familiar with medical education and health care systems, but also feel the atmosphere of working in a hospital at your country and of course get new acquaintances.
I really hope to be accepted for the clerkship and am looking forward to hearing from you.
With best regards,
