Cover Letter

Some institutions require cover letter which is basically just like 'letter of intent' except that you have to mention your electives detail, sponsor's detail and details of the documents you have attached with your application.
You can download a sample cover letter from below.

Apply a simple format that aims to address each question posed in the cover letter statement. Your career goals are what you intend to do later in your career, and how you can utilize the experience acquired from this elective to help achieve your career goals. Although you would definitely work as a doctor and see patients in your career, you can address specific topics of research that interest you and adopt them as your career goals.

Good luck.

Henry ford electives

Hello umar bhai,

I once again, call in for your help.

I intend to apply for electives at Henry ford. While going through the sample of "cover letter" you have uploaded here, i came across headings such as passport no, passport copy as well as health insurance and malpractice insurance proof. Are we, really, required to submit these along with the cover letter?

The official elective page requires us to fax only the following

  • Application Form
  • Dean’s Letter
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Cover Letter 
  • Immunization Records
