Sample Physician's Assistant Cover Letter

Notice how the applicant in this physician's assistant cover letter focuses on her ability as a non-physician clinician licensed to practice medicine with a physician's supervision. PAs can treat patients and, in most states, prescribe medicine, and in some states in the US they carry a DEA number that gives them authority to prescribe controlled medications. Therefore, physician's assistant cover letters should include this essential information.
