How to Write a Curriculum Vitae

Your curriculum vitae (CV) is the first impression you make to a hiring practice. This document must represent you well in a concise, yet eloquent manner and pique the interest of the hiring team to contact you personally. Any physician seeking a practice opportunity must compose a brief document that shows attention to detail while highlighting career strengths and educational accomplishments. What elements are important to include? What should be left for personal discussion? How do you handle publications, references, visas, career gaps?

The following is an interactive sample CV that DaVita SOURCE put together based on our years of experience working in the nephrology field. This document illustrates the elements strongly preferred by hiring professionals and physician practices.
