Psychiatrist CV Example

The ability to diagnose the mind can be done by a psychologist but being able to treat mental disorders is best left to a medical doctor who is trained as a psychiatrist. Treatment can take the form of psychotherapy which is behavioral modification or be prescribed with psychiatric medication. Outside of mental institutions and hospitals, psychiatrists can be found in private practice and government health care agencies.

After migrating to your country, I would like to offer my services to your hospital in the hope of broadening my expertise as a psychiatrist in your psychiatry department.  I may be relatively young having been a psychiatrist for the last 4 years since becoming a doctor in 1999, but I’ve treated a number of patients with known mental disorders enough to give me a headstart in the profession at my age.
