So I'm kicking around the idea of contacting some practices in the region where I'd like to settle. I'd like to feel things out a little bit. Trouble is, how does one go about this 1) without having my unsolicited letter end up directly in the trash, and 2) without coming across as a desperate freak? My tentative plan would be to enclose a condensed CV with a cover letter explaining my interest. After printing some of those suckers up on 50 lb. stock, who the Hell do I send them to? "Pathology Dept. @ Monkey Nuts Regional"? "Attn: Anybody, Scope Urchin Pathology Associates, LLC"? Randomly selected pathologist in the group? Every person in the group? The Devil is, indeed, in the details.
