Fellowship Pediatric Genetics, Foreign Doctor

I would like very much to be considered for a fellowship or position in the area of pediatric genetics. I chose to become a pediatrician because I am especially interested in doing research in the areas of genetics and inherited diseases, as well as stem cell research. I also hope to become certified by the American boards in pediatrics as well as genetics.

 I completed an intensive summer training program during my second year of medical school, and had the invaluable privilege of being a presenter as part of a health awareness campaign during my 4th year of med school, while doing my rotations in family medicine. My project was directed to young adults in high school and geared towards the need for greater awareness concerning skin diseases, how to prevent them as well as their psychological affects. Throughout the course of my one year internship in medicine, I did rotations in surgery, pediatrics, ER, pathology, and obstetrics and gynecology. Next, I completed a one year residency position in pediatrics and also served as a teaching assistant in this area. I came to the US to study on a scholarship and have finished step one and step two of the USMLE.

 My long term goal is to become a consultant and professor in the area of pediatric genetics. I want to pursue a carrier in academic teaching because I especially love leading group discussions and teaching  students and interns.

 I would like to be accepted to your program, in particular, because I feel strongly that it is the best opportunity for me to excel in my field and realize my long term ambitions.
