How to write a Medical CV


Keep it short
CVs are recommended to be no longer than two pages. However due to the nature of the industry, a medical resume can be longer, but still try to keep it short, concise and avoid inserting irrelevant information.


Focus your CV on the vacancy
Make sure your CV is targeted and written for the post you are applying for. From reading the job advert create a list of key competencies the recruiter is looking for. Avoid generic statements or vague assertions of what you can do, instead give specific detailed and accounts of your relevant skill sets and if possible back them up with evidence.


Mention your communication skills
Working in the healthcare profession can be a demanding job. It requires excellent communication skills as you will be working as part of a team and also liaising with patients and their relatives.

  • GMC registration status, mention if provisional, limited, or full registration.
  • Specific hospitals or surgeries you have worked at, include positions and dates.
  • Any publications.
  • Medical defence union.
  • Clinical competence and experience.
  • Your career objectives.

Work experience
Consider showing your experience and achievements in two separate sections, for instance relevant experience and also additional experience. You can also break it down further by organising your experience under specific headings such as:

  • Research
  • Supervising
  • Teaching
  • Administration


Provide evidence of your achievements
You need to do this to gain credibility with recruiters and convince the selectors that you have the full range of skills that they are looking for. Do this showing your best and most relevant examples of what you have done, where you did it and also when.
