Family Medicine Residency CARMS, Canada

Growing up in my native Philippines, I dearly loved my little brother, who was always quite sickly. There were times, when he was gravely ill, that our doctors told us to “pray very hard.” I deeply resented this fatalistic attitude, and my brother’s suffering caused me to mature beyond my years and to focus early on medicine as a career.

I became a medical doctor and obtained a Master’s Degree in Health Administration in Manila. For most of the last two decades, however, I practiced medicine in Taiwan, until immigrating to Canada two years ago. I am now completing clinical training in Vancouver’s Chinatown. I am most pleased to be having this enormous learning opportunity to work with beautiful people and an extremely experienced and knowledgeable supervisor.

Personally, I am very fond of diversity in medicine and believe in the importance of professional, cross-cultural sharing, and learning from each other. I am now familiar with health systems in three very different societies, and I feel that this makes me a strong candidate for a residency program since I draw on such diversity of experience. I also think that I have a lot of creative energy to bring to your schedule.

I had more than ten years of beautiful experiences in obstetrics and gynecology in Taiwan, and I truly loved being a gynecologist. When I immigrated to Canada, however, I was told that there was a particular need for family practice medical doctors. So I immediately began training to respond to this need, and I stayed current on developments in family medicine. I would feel honored to be able to continue my practice of medicine in this area. I see the family as the most fundamental social fabric and especially critical to health maintenance and recovery.

I look forward to the experience of the great diversity of this area as well, as the opportunity to develop ongoing relationships with numerous families.

I have read that more than 4 million Canadians do not have access to a family doctor due to a critical shortage of practicing physicians in this area. I feel honored to answer this call, especially since the problem is expected to get even worse in the coming years. Canada is my new home, and I want to shoulder the responsibility of contributing to providing all Canadians with essential medical services. I am quite willing to relocate to where the need is most significant in Canada, and I am most keen on this opportunity of service.

I look forward to many years of giving my all to the Canadian hospital system. My long-term goals include opening my own family practice clinic at some point in my career. I would also very much enjoy having the experience of teaching and having the opportunity to share the many things that I am learning.

I want to thank you for considering my application to serve.
