Easy to Follow Tips for Medical Students The Path to a Good CV Starts Early! Writing your CV.
Start on Day 1! The Completed CV
How do i know I did it right? The Curriculum Vitae (CV) replaces the resume in a medical student's professional life. Because of this, the CV is far more comprehensive and specific than a traditional resume. A CV elaborates on education and professional experiences, but also includes sections for research, presentations and publications, which are areas generally not covered on resumes. With each academic opportunity that you have at UCF COM
you are building your CV. So why wait?

Start now! Heading: This will include your name, address, phone and email address.
Education: Include all earned degrees, as well as anticipated M.D. degree (ex.expected date of graduation...). List the name of the University, location, dates attended and if relevant, minor earned. If you graduated with honors (ex. Summa Cum Laude), you will also state that in this area.
Professional Experience/Work Experience: This is formal employment, however it should be no later than employment held during your undergraduate education. Research Assistant positions will not go in this area.
Publications: List any publication(s) that have been published that you were a part of. List it as you would cite a source. If a publication is "in progress" label it as such.
Presentations: List any presentation that you were a part of. Include the location, title of presentation and date.
Honors and Awards
Research Experience: Research Assistant positions would be listed in this area.
Community Services / Volunteer Experience What are the "categories" of a CV? As you start out, your CV will be limited to the experience you have from your undergraduate (and graduate) education. Everyone's CV will be different so don't expect yours to look like the examples you find or even a fellow classmates. As you continue in your educational career you will find that some of the categories can be combined as you add new information to your CV. Example: Presentations and Publications can be combined into one area. Pick the best categories for your experiences and remember to keep the information concise and specific.
Leadership experience
Professional affiliations and memberships
Licensure and certifications
Military experience
Teaching experience
Foreign language proficiencies Additional categories to consider Your CV should be consistent throughout and naturally easy to follow.
Always start with your Header category.
Use reverse chronological order for the categories and the experience contained in each section. Example: For most first year medical students, this means educational experience would be the next section after your header.
Choose categories that highlight your most recent and relevant experiences. Each CV is personal and therefore the categories listed will vary.
Use consistent spacing
Choose a professional font, I recommend Times New Roman, in size 10 -12. You will find that as your CV grows, you will need to adjust the font for aesthetic purposes.
Set 1-inch margins Format Tips Although CVs vary, looking at different examples is a good way to find a style and layout that you like. As you see more examples of CV's you will get a feel of the categories that you want to include. Consider your CV a tool that will relay a solid picture of who you are and the accomplishments that you have achieved thus far.
Remember to revise your CV on a consistent basis. Keeping your CV updated will make it easier to have it ready at a moment's notice, when you want to apply for scholarships, fellowships, or positions.
Don't forget to ask an advisor or mentor to review your CV. Many times, they will be able to add valuable insight and suggestions. Resources There are many online sources for CV tips and formats. Some great examples can be found on:

do you think go on a CV? Objective References Address Community Service Education Research Experience Teaching Experience Presentations Publications Professional Experience Honors and Awards Personal Statement Foreign Language Ability Affiliations/Memberships 1) References
In most cases you will be providing letters of reference with your CV, so listing "References available upon request is redundant"

2) Objective
The use of a CV is obvious to the reader. It is to attain the scholarship, fellowship,membership etc. Stating your purpose is unnecessary.

Not on a CV!
