LETTER OF APPLICATION.

I've decided to add this letter so i can proparly introduce myself as an extention to the standard

info which is on my resume.

I'm 51 y.o. ,u.s citizen ,divoreced w/3 children ages 20,22,23 who live with their mom  in Israel.

I have moved to Israel on nov. 2008 from New york which was our home since1994 .

In Ny i was imployed at Bio-Fit Orthotics.located in Brooklyn as an orthotics and prosthetics practitioner.

At Bio-Fit we've provided custom fabricated and custom fitted orthotics and prosthetics services  to different hospitals in the city and brooklyn, :Mt Sinai,St. vincent, Methodist,Kingsbrook jewish and more.

As part of my job i did prrety much anything that  came around : covering ortho clinics in various areas( pediatrics,joints,rehalb,spine,sport and more) and was involved in pretty much every aspect of the buisness daily tasks: patient care/follow up ,office management(billing,stock,appts etc.) operating the lab(fabricating,supply managing ,    training new tech's,etc.)

At my current job in Israel i have pretty much the same responsibilities however with more prosthetics orientation (lots of army veterans)

During my time in the o/p field I made sure to stay current and maintained my continuous education whether in  manufacturers courses or attending regional and international meetings and seminars.

Recently I've decided  to move back to New york with my wife (a practitioner as well) I am positive that my life and professional experience /quolafication and  personality are making me a good candidate for the offered position .
