    Having too much fun playing with these.

    Like your clinical experience section. it's the best organized seen yet. Be sure to break down your 600+ hours among your rotations to show how long you did what.

    Usual disclaimers: Assumed skills, profile and Professional statement wording from what was gleamed and is somewhat generic; be sure to tailor those to reflect your true self, knowledge, skills and abilities and keyworded for the position your applying for. Also assumed you took your boards and just waiting for your license number to arrive. Since there's no tab feature, date right-justification and bullet alignment are shown with "ꞈ" instead.
