When you’re in the process of looking for a physiatry practice opportunity, your CV is usually the first impression a prospective employer will have of you. For that reason, it’s vital that you make it your absolute best effort. We’ve included a sample CV on this page for your reference that can be used as a physician CV template. Let’s look at each section individually.
For the education portion of your physician CV, be sure to include all educational experience you have. You don’t need to include your high school unless you want to; your subsequent education will prove that you did attend and successfully complete high school.
The key to submitting a CV for physiatry recruitment that gets noticed is for the included information to stand out. Include any accomplishments, such as Chief Resident, on your CV. If you have accomplishments in your personal life, include them as well.
If you aren’t a recent entrant in the field, then you likely have some pm&r employment experience. Don’t be shy about showcasing it! Feel free to add this in the physician CV example above. Hiring entities are searching for different qualities. Some want fresh faces while others want someone with proven experience. Those who are looking for someone with experience will often jump to this portion of the CV before looking at anything else. Make it count.
As with education, consider adding contact information for the person for whom you worked. It doesn’t have to be complete, but a name and department may be helpful. Always include the highest position you held, even if it was only for a brief time. If you earned any recognitions or awards, include those as well.

PM&R Recruitment: Personal Information
