Medical Doctor Resume Example

How to write the perfect CV for a doctor, that's exactly what we're going to talk about today. We're going to focus on how to create a great medical CV. Below you can see the full version of the CV template that we use. It is a well-formatted and very clear template and we’re going to go through all of the major sections.

1. The contact information

The very first section of your resume should really be all about you. So the very top section is going to be personal details which are your personal contact details and that include your name, your address, your phone number, your email, and your LinkedIn URL. There's nothing else that needs to be included at this stage. You can review the example below.

2. Summary

The next section down from your personal details is the summary. It’s really your opportunity to lure in the consultant that's reading your CV and get them to continue reading onto your resume where you talk more about your skills and experiences in detail.

3. Highlights

So the next section is the highlights section which basically highlights your competencies in clinical procedures and skills. We particularly recommend inserting this section at this stage. Your abilities will probably tell an employer exactly what they need to know. In our example below we mentioned some specific skills to highlight, however, this is going to be completely different for every single specialism. At this stage, a really important tip is to detail everything even the more junior competencies even if you think that they're irrelevant.

Being completely honest about that helps an employer identify exactly where the skills gaps might be and what they need to train you on when you join the work.

4. Employment history

The next section and arguably the most important section is your employment history. Start with your most recent position that's where you want the most detail and work backward from there in chronological order. The most important thing here particularly with your most recent job is that you need to exemplify how your role is similar to the role and how it differs from the role that you're applying for.

5. Education

The next section is education. This is really a snapshot of whether you are equipped to do the job that the employer is looking for you to do. It can be quite a factual section of your CV. Make sure to include it in reverse chronological order. Include all certifications and degrees along with the dates you achieved them in. Just below that put down your OET or IELTS or whichever route you came through for your English language testing as well followed with training courses like for example safeguarding children if you’re a pediatrician.
