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.
