Getting Started with CVs and Cover Letters Every graduate student needs a curriculum vitae, or CV Your CV represents your accomplishments and experience as an academic and helps to establish your professional image. Well before you apply for faculty positions, you will use your CV to apply for fellowships and grants, to accompany submissions for publications or conference papers, when being considered for leadership roles or consulting projects, and more. CV’s are also used when applying for some positions outside academia, such as in think tanks or research institutes, or for research positions in industry. As you progress through graduate school, you will, of course, add to your CV, but the basic areas to include are your contact information, education, research experience, teaching experience, publications, presentations, honors and awards, and contact information for your references, or those people willing to speak or write on your behalf. Some formatting pointers: There is no single best format. Refer to samples for ideas, but craft your CV to best reflect you and your unique accomplishments. Unlike a resume, there is no page limit, but most graduate students’ CVs are two to five pages in length. Your CV may get no more than thirty seconds of the reader’s attention, so ensure the most important information stands out. Keep it concise and relevant! Be strategic in how you order and entitle your categories. The most important information should be on the first page. Within each category, list items in reverse chronological order.
CV Samples The Basics The curriculum vitae, also known as a “CV” or “vita,” is a comprehensive statement of your educational background and your teaching and research experience. It is the standard representation of credentials within academia. The CV is only used when applying for academic positions in four-year institutions. Do NOT use a CV when applying to community colleges; use a resume instead. Tailor your CV to the specific positions to which you are applying. A CV submitted for a position at a teaching-focused liberal arts college will strongly emphasize teaching, whereas a CV for a position at researchintensive university will accentuate research. Position more relevant sections earlier in the CV. CV format can vary by field, so also seek disciplinary-specific advice from advisers, professors and others within your field. There are no length restrictions for CVs. Formatting Your CV must be well organized and easy to read. Choose an effective format and be consistent. Use bolds, italics, underlines, and capitalization to draw attention. List all relevant items in reverse chronological order in each section Strategically locate the most important information near the top and/or left side of the page. In general, place the name of the position, title, award, or institution on the left side of the page and associated dates on the right. Use a footer to include page numbers & your last name, to help the reader in case pages get separated.
Writing a Curriculum Vitae (CV) Information accessible online by logging into Careers in Medicine (http://www.aamc.org/students/cim/). - Click on “Getting into Residency” - Click on “Writing a Curriculum Vitae (CV)” The first of many supporting documents you'll need for the residency application process is a curriculum vitae (CV). A CV is concise summary of relevant information about your background and accomplishments, particularly relating to your academic and work experience. Since much of the application process is electronic, the use of a CV to apply to programs is limited. The ERAS system will generate a CV for you automatically, but the format is very basic. While you may not need to send a separate CV with your applications, it's helpful to have one prepared anyway. Most of the information you include on a CV will also be required for the your residency application - having it all in one place on a CV will make writing your application and personal statement easier. Your school may also request a CV to aid in the preparation of your Medical School Performance Evaluation (MSPE). Lastly, you should provide a CV to faculty members who will write your letters of recommendation. Creating a CV takes time, but it's a tool you'll use throughout your professional life. You'll need to present complete but succinct information that will provide an overview of your qualifications. A CV is a living document that represents you -- properly constructed and with periodic updates, the CV you develop now can be used throughout your career.
The curriculum vitae (CV) is the most significant document in your academic application packet. The CV is a running record of your academic and professional achievements and experiences. Unlike the resume, which is used for jobs outside academia, the CV can be more than one page. Typically, CVs for doctoral candidates, post-docs, and recent grads are 2-6 pages. The CV should grow in length as you progress in your career. If you are having a difficult time getting started with your CV, check out the examples at the end of this handout and ask your advisor or mentor if you can see a copy of his/her CV. BASIC TIPS • Remember there is not one right way to compose your CV. • As you are writing your CV, check with a faculty member or other colleague within your discipline because some fields have different expectations regarding CV format and/or content. • Consider tailoring your CV for each job description. This takes time and energy but targeting your materials in the beginning should save you time in the end (in other words, you submit fewer applications and get a job in a shorter amount of time). • Keep in mind that the purpose of every document in your application packet is to show how you are passionate, forward-thinking, valuable, and a great match with the job description. • Always have somebody proofread your materials before you send them out. Having a misspelled word on the first page of your vitae is a good way to get your materials discarded.
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a neoplastic disease with a continuously growing incidence in Romania and throughout the world. Although the surgery remains the first line treatment for most of the cases, newly discovered targeted molecular therapies – effective for some patients, but with various side effects and significant financial burden for the national health systems – requires not only stratification of patients in prognostic groups but also evaluation of some non-anatomic factors with major impact on the prognosis and therapeutic strategy. The AJCC/UICC TNM staging system, in his 7th revision, effective for cases diagnosed on or after January 1, 2010, responds to these needs. On the other hand, the role of the pathologist is increasing in terms of workload and amount of information to be included in the pathology report in order to deliver a personalized diagnosis. There are concerns worldwide regarding relevance, validity and completeness of pathologic reporting of CRC in the absence of a uniform reporting format. Therefore, suggestions for a standardized pathology report of CRC are made, based on TNM 7 and recent, up-to-date conclusive published data. Keywords: colorectal cancer, TNM 7, pathologic stage, prognostic, reporting.

The following outline shows a basic format for most academic papers. No matter what length the paper needs to be, it should still follow the format of having an introduction, body, and conclusion. Read over what typically goes in each section of the paper. Use the back of this handout to outline information for your specific paper. The introduction should have some of the following elements, depending on the type of paper: Start with an attention grabber: a short story, example, statistic, or historical context that introduces the paper topic Give an overview of any issues involved with the subject Define of any key terminology need to understand the topic Quote or paraphrase sources revealing the controversial nature of the subject (argumentative papers only) Highlight background information on the topic needed to understand the direction of the paper Write an antithesis paragraph, presenting the primary opposing views (argumentative paper only) The introduction must end with a THESIS statement (a 1 to 2 sentences in length): Tell what the overall paper will focus on Briefly outline the main points in the paper. Clearly present the main points of the paper as listed in the thesis Give strong examples, details, and explanations to support each main points If an argumentative paper, address any counterarguments and refute those arguments If a research paper, use strong evidence from sources—paraphrases, summaries, and quotations that support the main points. Restate your thesis from the introduction in different words Briefly summarize each main point found in the body of the paper (avoid going over 2 sentences for each point) Give a statement of the consequences of not embracing the position (argumentative paper only) End with a strong clincher statement: an appropriate, meaningful final sentence that ties the whole point of the paper together (may refer back to the attention grabber) Additional Tips Decide on the thesis and main points first You do not need to start writing your paper with the introduction Try writing the thesis and body first; then go back and figure out how to best introduce the body and conclude the paper Use transitions between main points and between examples within the main points Always keep your thesis in the forefront of your mind while writing; everything in your paper must point back to the thesis Use the back of this handout to make an outline of your paper
