Hello we're here to talk today about how to write a resume for a pathologist or other kind of MD but let's assume that pathologist is the specific one we're talking about and remember that the purpose of a resume is to get an interview. It's not necessarily to tell somebody everything about yourself, you certainly want to be complete enough and that sometimes can be an elusive target but let's look through an outline of one of these and see what it might look like. Obviously at the top you would have name, MD, other affiliations that you might have, FACS, something like that, and then your contact information including street address, e-mail, home phone and cell phone if you have one recognizing that cell phones are more accessible so if somebody is trying to get in touch with you they are more likely to call you on a cell phone then they would say at a home phone and education and training of course, whatever fellowships you may have held, any post graduate studies that you've done of course and resumes, sorry, excuse me, residencies that you have done, we're doing a resume not a residency and other medical training that you may have had and then the school of medicine or schools of medicines that you may have attended and the years in which you have attended those or years of graduation and then your under graduate school as well and then after that we would like to see you put your professional experience what organization you worked at, the location and the years, similarly the description of the position the activities, the duties, and the significant accomplishments that you may have done within that particular position and that would follow back if you have had more than one position because we are going in reverse chronological order here so going back in time to previous position and the one before that and the one before that of course and at the top of each page put your name, the number of that page and your phone number again, your cell phone number. Again this one I've put in another area similar professional experience and as you see repeat if you have had other positions, any awards and honors that you have had, association awards, corporate awards, government awards, military or academic and then your current professional data, what states you are certified in, any medical licensures, obviously any specialty certifications and other certificates that you may have. Similarly professional societies, academic appointments, professional activities that you do, advisory committees where you are listed, publications, editorials and conferences that you have spoken at as well can be valuable addition to a medical resume and then we like to see some personal side of this as well, community activities that you may be involved in and frankly hobbies and leisure activities and that is again an outline, a brief at how you would go about constructing a resume if you were a pathologist or similar MD. Thank you very much for your attention.
