Delaying an internship

<p>Dear Friends,</p>

<p>I've accepted an internship offer from one of the best companies in my field. I am supposed to start this August, but I need to delay the start date for one year due to some health issues. What do you think is the best thing to tell'em ? </p>

<p>Thank you</p>

<p>Is there a problem with simply telling them that you have health issues?</p>

<p>Unless of course your delay has nothing to do with health issues, just tell them why you need a delayed start.</p>

<p>Thank you very much for your reply. Indeed, I've health issues that could seriously affect my performance, and I don't want to ruin the opportunity. I was just concerned about what they'll think. I think I'll send them a hand-written letter to explain, and perhaps a medical report to back it up.</p>

<p>Thank you very much</p>

<p>That sounds good, good luck with everything.</p>
