The field of healthcare is very vast, and individuals with various levels of education and experience might cultivate their resumes differently. Even considering this, there are a few key concepts that are universal for resumes, even outside of the healthcare field. To aid you in creating the proper resume for you, take a look at this Healthcare Clinic Manager resume sample and a few tips from professional resume writers.
Incorporate a Summary Properly
A career summary is quite different from an objective summary. Where objective summaries were once the standard for professional resumes, career summaries have grown in popularity and have become the main summary of choice for many professionals and employers alike. The career summary focuses more on what an applicant can provide and how their skills apply to the position. It should also highlight the individuals greatest strengths and accomplishments, if applicable. WRONG: Looking for an opportunity in a growing organization to work as enthusiastic and reliable management professional with outstanding clinical and managerial skills. Leading Clinic Team Leader in one of the busiest office in West Texas. RIGHT: Proven management professional with over eight years of experience as a Clinic Team Lead in one of the busiest offices in West Texas. Able to effective train and manage staff members while promoting the effective functioning and operation of multiple facility locations. Seeking to grow by obtaining a management position with a budding organization.
Connect Positions with the Same Business
If you have worked with a company consecutively, even if it is in different positions or locations, you should connect the two positions under one heading. You may still keep the positions separate under the heading if they are different positions, however there is no need to list them as completely separate when they are actually related. As in the case of the sample, the two Clinic Team Lead positions should be merged into one and in the location area, both locations should be noted. Otherwise, you get the overlap of information, which the writer tried to hide by having them in different formats. This is incorrect in a couple ways: 1) all parts of one section should follow the same format; 2) the second section looks like more of a filler section than an actual explanation of duties. Though running two separate locations is not a simple task, it can be better indicated by stating multiple-locations in the location area or within one of the bullets.
Clearly Detail Education/Training
Especially in situations such as in the sample where the individuals experience does not completely fill a page, it is important that all elements be labeled and detailed clearly. All training and education should detail three specific things: 1. The program 2. Specialization (if applicable) 3. Institution received WRONG: Dental Assistant 2000 Sealant Certified CPR Certified RIGHT: Dental Assistant, South Plains College, Lubbock, TX Sealant Certification, Lubbock Dental Academy, Lubbock, TX CPR Certification, American Red Cross, Lubbock, TX Some individuals like to include the year they received their certification or degree as well, which is fine. However, if it is included with one entry it should be included with all; consistency is key. It should also be noted that education that was received over ten years ago may be viewed as irrelevant, if it has not been continuously applied over the years. These and other rules are important to keep in mind when constructing your resume. One simple way to ensure that you create a superior resume is to utilize tools such as the QuintCareer’s Resume Builder.
