Curriculum Vitae (Doctor) Resume

The resume or curriculum vitae of a doctor, which is used mainly in the fields involving scientific research and education, comprises of information pertaining to the candidate's career related goals and interests, including a gist of his professional background, experience in research and teaching, accomplishments, and other significant parameters that define a resume as a curriculum vitae. A CV is comparatively lengthier than a resume, offering an executive summary, and a section dedicated to any involvement in training programs and internships. However, if you have only commonplace facts to state as your accomplishments, then it is better to exclude the information, rather than consuming the supposedly precious time of the recruiters in the expression of the mundane.

Include the information of any publications or academic works. If you are a member of any association or institution, do mention it following your academic qualification. All rewards and awards that you may have earned along the course of your education and profession as a doctor, should be included as your accomplishments. Include a section to express your interests, besides the primary profession, but somewhat related to the profession of medicine. If you are unable to come up with any such information, you are most welcome to skip the part; but do not fill it up with mediocre information. In the Key Skills section, you are to state your strengths and capabilities, including about 6-8 points, only the most significant ones.

All information that you provide should follow a reverse chronological order, with the most recent information preceding the older ones. Strive to maintain brevity, precision, and simplicity in your content. Organize your thoughts carefully prior to drafting your application. This will help you keep uniformity throughout the resume, thus optimizing the reader's engagement in your application. Keep the tone formal, but write as if you're including a personal message. And that personal message is your advertisement. In a manner, you are marketing your profile, you're advertising yourself to be considered as a desirable candidate/resource. However, ensure that you avoid becoming superfluous, while zooming in on the important information.
