Sample cover letter for Internship position at Psychology Internship
XXX Hospital, Eating Disorder Program
City, WI 53xxx
Dear Contact Person:
I am writing in regard to express my interest in a practicum placement at the XXX Psychiatric Hospital Eating Disorder Program. This position is of great interest to me because my professional goal is to work with adolescents diagnosed with eating disorders.
I am currently a first year graduate student working on my master’s degree in community counseling with an emphasis on child and adolescent counseling at Marquette University in the department of Counseling and Educational Psychology. Some strengths of mine include being a hard-working and self-motivated individual. These qualities are not only reflected in my grade point average and other academic achievements, but also in the successful completion of an internship working with at-risk children and adolescents at a women’s shelter.
I am eager to learn about and utilize empirically supported treatments for eating disorders, which is a practice that is central to your program. Furthermore, including a patient’s family in the treatment process and providing that patient with the necessary skills to achieve lifelong change is something that is important to both your program and myself. Therefore, I believe my skills, experiences, and interests combined with my psychological academic background make me an ideal candidate for this practicum position.
Enclosed is a current copy of my resume. If you have any questions regarding how my skills, experiences, and interests fit with your program, please call me at XXX. I may also be reached through E-mail at XXX. Thank you for considering me for this position and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
