Introduction

Introduction

  • CV writing: an art not a science

  • A tool to highlight your skills, experience and accomplishments

  • You had a great CV to get into medical school – needs to be changed/updated for residency

  • Paper-based CV useful for references and for some individual residency programs

  • Put yourself in the shoes of your reader

  • Update regularly – maintain a “master CV” including everything, then edit for specific positions


Formatting style

Formatting/Style

  • Keep it concise, consistent, organized, mistake-free

  • Put most important sections first and allow them the most space (make your format work for you!)

  • Use reverse chronological order

  • A professional document, not an art-project!

  • Invest in good quality paper

  • Be wary of ready-made templates – very labour-intensive to edit/update

  • Try to keep CV between 2-3 pages
