Surgical Technologist Cover Letter
The origin of this job can be traced back to World War I, where the doctors used medics to help them with their work. These medics today, are known as surgical technologists, though the term 'medic' is still very much in use. They have key responsibility to assist the team of surgeons during an operation. Their work includes getting operation theater ready, arranging the necessary equipments and medicine before hand, helping with the proceedings of the operation and providing the doctors with whatever they need during the operation. One of the most important traits of a surgical technologist is to understand and predict a surgeon's next requirement. They basically, work under a senior supervisor sterilizing needles, checking the equipment and checking the operation charts.
A surgical technologist must be trained in handling various situations like delivery, accident patients and other critical cases. They should also be knowledgeable about machines. They can work in many offices: dentist, orthopedic, cardiology, physician, etc. Their names also vary from place to place: circulating surgical technologist, scrub surgical technologist, etc. They can be working with hospitals as well as with private clinics.

Subject- Application for the post of Surgical Technologist
Dear Dr. Attenborough,
I read your advertisement about an available job post of a full-time Surgical Technician at your hospital. This ad was posted on www.healthcare.com, dated 4th Dec, '13.
I have a solid experience of 9 years in this field of allied medicine. During this duration, I have worked at 2 separate hospitals. My last job was at Pennsylvania Medical Centre where I assisted in various kinds of operations with the Cardiology team. Being on the team, my responsibilities were clearly defined, which I carried out with utmost discipline. I am a recipient of Best Team award for our contribution as a team. Getting the operation theater ready, getting the machines started and sterilizing the equipment were some of my duties along with closely working with the surgical team, assisting them with the operation.
About educational background, I have done my internship with Boston Hospital as an operation assistant and worked on open heart surgery and neurosurgery. It is here that I got my hands-on experience while working with an extremely professional and well-learned team of surgeons. I also worked as an intern with Sacred Heart Hospital as a documentation supervisor collecting case related details and handing them to the surgeons for study. I also worked for a brief time with the nursing department. Here, I looked after the patients after their operation. I have initially done a two years' course in Allied Medical Sciences from the University of Pittsburgh.
Because I already have the relevant experience required for this job and with my certificate of excellence and a continued dedicated approach towards this profession, I think I will be able to do justice to my job with XYZ Hospital. I am attaching here my resume along with other relevant documents and hope to meet you soon.
