First step recruiting,

I am writing to you for the position for the psychiatric Physician Assistant. I can appreciate the opportunity to work with a diverse population. Soon to graduate from the OU OKC PA program, the mental health field and its population remains a sincere interest and passion of mine. I am looking to use my experiences in my life, education, and work to influence the people I see and those around me.

After being honorably discharged from the Army, I started the Substance Abuse Program at UCO with the intentions of becoming a counselor. Subsequently my interests went beyond the scope of counseling, so with the profession in mind I continued my degree while gaining experience at the VA hospital. After receiving my EMT certification, I again followed my interest in mental health and took an opportunity to work on the ACCENTs Unit at St. Anthony hospital. I chose to complete my practicum in the medical detox Unit in St. Anthony to expand my understanding of the pharmacotherapeutics involved, as well as learn from that patient population.

As I look forward to graduating from PA school this October, I am drawn to this position as an opportunity to contribute to the overall general health and mental health in our community. I would like the opportunity to contribute to the mission to restore wellness in Oklahoma, and am interested in exploring this opportunity. I thank you for your time and consideration.
