    Personal Statement for Residency

    Advertisements



    SO what is the personal statement for residency all about? There is plenty of information on personal statements for med schools but it'd be good to here more about this type. What is the objective? What is similar? What is different? Thanks , as always, in advance for the info.

    whats different?

    its much more important. i went on 6 med school interviews at US schools, as well as Ross. not one mentioned my personal statement. i went on a dozen and a half residency interviews, and not one did NOT mention my statement! i spent about 3 months working on it. i sent it to my undergrad pre-med advisor and my grad school advisor about 5 times, and tweaked it per their advice. do not skimp on your statement!

    personal statement

    In retrospect, my medical studies so far have re-defined how I see medicine and where I fit in providing medical care. In fact, my pre-med personal statement still rings true--hey, it still IS me.

    Nonetheless, I cannot imagine not revising it to reflect how more direct patient care, i.e. my clinical rotations, have strongly affected me--hey, I'm a different person than I was 4 YEARS ago.

    best wishes in distilling your life story into a compelling account of the physician you were meant to be...


    Cheers
