Writing your medical CV is vitally important. It is the first step in securing the post that you are seeking to further your career in the direction you desire. Even when the application process will be conducted through online application forms it is essential that you have your relevant information collected in a manner that you can adapt as required.

Your CV is the one document that contains detailed information about you and what you can offer your prospective employer. With medical jobs becoming increasingly competitive it is important to avoid the common errors and shortcomings that are responsible for most medical CV’s going in the “not to be short listed” pile. As you work through the book you are guided through the process of creating a water-tight document that is the stepping stone to a successful interview.

We describe how to make a difference, stand out from the crowd and sell yourself. The structure walks you through everything from style, what information should be entered where, giving you plenty of tips and templates to use for your medical CV.
