The resume and CV guide for physicians pursuing nonclinical and alternative jobs
Welcome to our three-part series on resume and CV format for doctors and the Perpetual Vitae™. These articles are geared toward physicians and other healthcare professionals who are pursuing non-clinical jobs or medical jobs that aren’t your typical “doctor” job in a clinical environment. A well-crafted CV or resume can really make you stand out among other applicants.
The first part focuses on the differences between a CV (short for curriculum vitae) and resume, when to use each, and why both of them are important for physicians with atypical careers. We’ll guide you through writing a CV in Part 2. Here, you can also get started on your Perpetual Vitae, which I think you’ll find to be a game-changer if you don’t already have some version of this in your files. Finally, Part 3 is all about constructing a resume.
Many of you are probably here wanting some advice on writing a resume and may be tempted to skip to part 3. I urge you to at least take a gander and parts 1 and 2. They’re the backbone of knowledge needed to craft a winning resume!
And – bonus! – we have a resume template for you to use.
