RE: Physician's Assistant Recruitment

To Whom It May Concern,

I, Ole V. Shepherd; Physician's Assistant, am a highly qualified, experienced, self motivated individual with thirty plus years experience in emergency medicine, urgent care, primary care, military medicine, general surgery, thoracic vascular surgery, cardiovascular surgery, reconstructive and plastic surgery. I have ten years military medicine experience, three years as a battalion surgeon/medical platoon leader, and four years at an out patient military clinic as a physician's assistant. The first five years were as a medic and then 91C/clinical specialist. The past eleven years I have been working as a locum in emergency medicine and urgent care.

I am ATLS, ACLS, CALS, FCC, APLS, PALS, and BLS certified. The majority of my experience has been as an independent duty provider where I have been the clinic manager, lab tech, and x-ray tech. I am seriously interested in your physician's assistant positions. I am of excellent health and have my passport and am ready to go now.

I await your response.

Respectfully yours,

Ole V. Shepherd, RPA-C
