Recommended Curriculum Vitae (CV) Format
Consider the following format when composing your CV.
Begin with your current or most recent employer, stating the dates of employment, position, name of practice, city and state. If the position is in an academic setting, include after the position title the institution name followed by the department name. If you are completing your residency/fellowship training and have no additional experience, delete this section.
Again, begin with your most current completed or pending degree. State the name of the degree along with any applicable honors, name of institution, department, city, and state. Unless there are special circumstance, do not include anything earlier than undergraduate degrees.
List boards and exams taken. Next list states in which you are currently licensed. It is not necessary to list dates.
Include accomplishments as far back as undergraduate school if medically relevant, along with dates.
Show the interviewer that you are active in the medical community.
In this section include any education that did not result in a degree, and non-medically related education and/or employment.
Listed in reverse chronological order. If applicable, this section would be followed by 'Presentations' and then by 'Research'.
Consider including the following information: marital status, number of children, visa status if applicable, additional languages spoken and interests/talents/hobbies.
Include references on a page separate from your CV. Include a minimum of three (3) references listed by name, title, institution or group name, department name if applicable, city, state, office and/or pager number, and home number.
