Biomedical Engineer Cover Letter Sample

biomedical engineer resume and cover letter

A cover letter sample is exactly that—a sample. Use this biomedical engineer cover letter sample as inspiration but don’t copy it entirely. You never want to submit a cover letter that looks exactly the same as your competitor’s cover letter (or a cover letter sample you find online). You must differentiate yourself.

Dear Dr. Fielding:

I am an experienced biomedical engineer skilled in the use of 3D modeling to enhance simulation studies and biomedical device development. I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the biomedical engineer position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to St. Thomas Hospital:

  • Expertise in analyzing human and manikin biodynamic response data to improve the design and function of medical devices.
  • Proficiency in analyzing device failures, identifying the root causes of their failures, and creating and implementing solutions that rectify issues and enhance device performance.
  • Aptitude for taking an active role on product development teams and creating customer support/troubleshooting guides for regional technicians.

In my 17 months at Healthspan, Inc., I have aided industry specialists, including neurologists and surgeons, in studying the impact of head trauma on humans, relaying the results of these studies to automobile and sports equipment companies in an attempt to enhance safety equipment so as to reduce the occurrence of TBI. My experience included developing and monitoring pressure sensors utilized in the helmets of college hockey athletes. Sensor readings were taken during real game situations and via lab simulations. My tests identified an insulation inadequacy in the Pro-Line Adult AA23 model, which, once rectified, reduced the instance of TBI by 16%. As your biomedical engineer position requires engineering and root cause analysis experience similar to mine, I believe I would serve St. Thomas Hospital well in this role.

I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my biomedical engineering experience at your earliest convenience. I may be reached at 555.555.5555 or via email at Thank you for your time and consideration.
