2014 Best Healthcare Resume written and designed by Michelle Dumas (3rd place TORI winner)
Explanation and Strategy Behind This Award-Winning “Best Healthcare Resume”
Dr. James Agard was a European-trained MD and U.S.-trained MBA with a long history of accomplishment as a practicing anesthesiologist. While he was still a practicing physician, his career had taken a turn into executive management and he wanted to continue this, hoping to land a CEO role.
He offered a very distinctive value proposition: the proven ability to transform medical operations into a unified, seamless, high-quality, and cost-optimized “value-based” sustainable system founded on common purpose, vision, and teamwork. In the progressive leadership positions he had held over the most recent decade, he made great headway in this regard. In writing and designing this resume, Michelle Dumas used a variety of charts, graphs, and callouts to illustrate this distinguishing value proposition. In particular, Michelle illustrated Dr. Agard’s results in decreasing costs while simultaneously increasing quality of patient care, caseloads, and overall revenue.
When Dr. Agard came to us, it was with a very detailed medical CV which included a very confusing chronology of his experience, since many of his positions had been simultaneous. Michelle rewrote his résumé into a traditional executive format that showcased his stories of challenge-action-result-strategic impact success, particularly as they related back to his value proposition. The emphasis throughout is on his leadership and management competencies, though his clinical highlights and medical credentials add essential credibility and are highlighted in his summary profile.
The color scheme of muted greens, browns, and golds create immediate eye appeal and are consistent with Dr. Agard’s conservative personality.
