Sample Thank You Letter #1



Dear Dr.  :


It was a pleasure meeting with you again in December.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your time and to once again express my sincere interest in your program/

Since our meeting, I have completed my coast-to-coast interview trek across the country.  I even experienced my first earthquake while visiting family in Los Angeles.  Although my vacation time was cut short, it was quite an experience volunteering to help at Cedars  Sinai  Medical  Center after the disaster.


Your program has all the components of an excellent residency; a diverse patient population, extensive operative experience, state of the art facilities, and residents who are team players. But most of all, I was very impressed with the quality of the attending staff and their overall dedication to educating and producing top-notch surgeons.

If there is any additional information that is needed, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I trust that during our discussion I was able to convey my desire to become a highly motivated and successful member of your house staff.  I look forward to the Match and for the opportunity to work with you, your residents, and staff in July.
