Help Writing a cover page for Cleveland Clinic

hi friends,

I had applied for observership at Cleveland clinic, and day before I got an email in which they had asked for some documents, one of which is cover page in which I have to write interest and experience in the field. I have no experience as I started my step prep after my internship.....I am not sure what to write in that, please if I could get some help in the same as I am presently not able to think much as I have step 2 on my head......
And also I would like to know which sub-specialty would be good for me .

Default Example of Statement of Interest

Here's an example of a statement of interest (Cover letter, also called Letter of Intent)

To: Cleveland Clinic / Center for International Medical Education
Sub: Statement of interest in XXXX observership rotation

Dear sir/madam,

I am an international medical graduate who graduated from XXXX in the year XXXX.

I would be really happy if I can shadow physicians and staff in the XXXX department at your highly reputed Cleveland clinic.
This will allow me to have a close look at the way the health care system is running in USA. It will also increase my chances of getting a XXXX residency match when I apply next September.
I understand that the observership program does not involve direct patient interaction and it will not be remunerated. I am ready to follow any instructions and regulations you deem necessary.
I will be very grateful if you can place me for a XX month observership rotation in the XXXX department.

Sincerely and thankfully yours,
