Re: Medical Billing Internship

Dear Ms. Monroe:

ABC Health Center’s reputation for excellence suggests that you remain on the lookout for dedicated and detail-oriented medical billing professionals.

With that in mind, I am writing to explore the possibility of securing an unpaid internship within your medical billing department. This will allow me to complete my in-progress associate’s degree in insurance billing and coding, while you can add a productive and technically skilled professional to your team—without increasing your payroll.

I offer:

  • Solid credentials. In addition to my pending degree in insurance billing and coding from XYZ College, I hold an A.S. in liberal arts and current designation as a Massachusetts-Certified Nursing Assistant.
  • Medical billing and coding knowledge base. My courses at XYZ have covered claims processing, diagnosis/procedure coding, health informatics, healthcare systems and data entry, providing me with the knowledge and skills to add value to your operation without extensive training or ramp-up time.
  • A medical background that has been well-honed through three years of experience working as a CNA within large medical centers. I have a strong foundation in medical terminology, pharmacology, healthcare operations, EMR systems, patient charts/recordkeeping and HIPAA regulations.

I would welcome the chance to discuss an internship opportunity with you. You can reach me at (555) 555-5555 or email I look forward to our conversation.
