Dear Dr. Stewart:
I am an experienced biomedical engineer with proficiency in troubleshooting and repairing technology in medical environments. I would like to bring my collective experience and success to the biomedical engineer position you are currently advertising, specifically contributing the following to Mercy Hospital of Buffalo:
- Aptitude for conducting preventative maintenance and quality assurance testing of surgical equipment, including patient monitors and video integration systems.
- Proficiency in the setup and calibration of laboratory technology; experience assessing lab needs and making purchasing recommendations per project needs.
- Expertise in identifying the root cause of equipment failures, and creating and implementing solutions that rectify issues and enhance device performance.
As an intern with Caltern Industries’ Biomedical department, I assisted senior engineers and technicians in the monitoring and conducting routine maintenance of lab equipment that included physiological monitors, which were used continually to monitor patients participating in a lung study that was under the supervision of pulmonologists. In this capacity, I created an online notification system for collaborating departments to request technological support in the event of equipment failure and/or the need to recalibrate equipment. The system led to a reduction in average response of technicians by 70%, down to 15 minutes. As your biomedical engineer position requires root cause analysis and lab support experience similar to mine, I believe I would serve Mercy Hospital of Buffalo 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 email@example.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.
