My name is V... and I am a second year veterinary student from the University of Melbourne. As part of our progression into the 3rd year of clinical placements and surgery, we are required to intern at different clinics in two week blocks to prepare us for surgical subjects next year. I would be in Singapore from the 11th December 2012 to 24th January 2013 and I would like to take on a two week placement at your veterinary facility anytime between the dates aforementioned.
I am very interested in specialising in small animal surgery after I graduate. I believe that your clinic would help me greatly in preparation for next year and that I would learn many skills from you.
I am a fast and keen learner and will work well in a team and I would really appreciate an opportunity to work in your veterinary hospital.
Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon!
I am Dr Sing from Toa Payoh Vets which is not a veterinary hospital. If you can work the hours 9.30 am to 8 pm on weekdays and 9.30 am to 5 pm on weekends, I will be most happy to accept you for the 2-week intern. Email to me your resume and two character references.
Dear Dr Sing
Thank you for your prompt reply! I would be happy to work these hours at your clinic. I have attached my resume (my character references included) as well as details from the school to my supervising veterinarian. I would like to enquire when would it be a good time for me to commence my placement? Thank you for your time!
Start at 9am from 11 Dec for 2 weeks. Interns should dress appropriately and be punctual and keen in vet medicine.
