Sample 1st Paragraph for Residency Position in Family Medicine

I am a physician in Iran who is extremely devoted to the cause of women’s health. I am so fully aware of the fact that in my country, Iran, we have so much to learn. We look to the West to help us. This is why I humbly ask for the privilege of serving as a Family Physician with your distinguished institution. It is my hope that after serving as a resident for several years, I will be able to learn the most valuable of tools, and the wisdom that I will need when I return to Iran to do everything for the cause of women’s health in my own country. As the Middle East is once again turning into a ball of fire, we are going to need many physicians with exceptional training to help save the lives of families caught up in our conflicts. I am not optimistic about Middle East politics. And I look forward to helping.

Since my son Davy was born on November 5, 2011, this toddler has become the total center of my world. He is all that I have, my only family. This is why I get especially excited by the opportunity to draft a model personal statement in the area of Family Medicine, because of the importance of family to us all, our futures, the future of the human race, our planet, etc.: it all depends on our children who in turn depend on their families. While I live back in Bolivia where Davy’s mother is a professor who teaches sustainable architecture, we went back to my home in the USA to have our baby. There was not a kinder more attentive medical team in the world than those who cared for the three of us. My wife had an extremely difficult delivery and we were in the hospital for almost one week. Helping residents to prepare successful statements in the area of Family Medicine helps me to stay engaged with this exciting area, and to give something back in exchange for the wonderful treatment we were given, to say thank you one more time for my gift, Davy.

When I am not drafting statements for doctors, I am usually playing with Davy and his friends, indigenous children where we live in Bolivia. Most of my own research work is devoted to the well being of children in the Developing World, children like the indigenous playmates of Davy. This is also why I especially enjoy working on behalf of family physicians from the Developing World, because I know that it is likely that they will return at some point in time and to help us, caring for the most vulnerable families in the world.

My mother, who is now suffering from Alzheimers was the main reason why we went back to the United States to have our baby. Our family physician is the kindest woman in the world, Becky Allmon in Bedford, Indiana will have my undying gratitude for eternity. Helping residents to prepare successful statements in the area of Family Medicine helps me to stay engaged with this most exciting area, and to give something back in exchange for the wonderful treatment we were given, to say thank you one more time for my gift, Davy Dylan Edinger.

An old wise man and creative writer, I help doctors from all over the world to be selected for residency and fellowship positions. For as many doctors as possible, I draft a model first paragraph for your residency or fellowship Statement at no obligation. My service is quite different from other statement writing services on the Internet for several reasons. I am the little guy on the web, not a big business like most of my competitors. You deal directly with me. I answer all of your questions completely free of charge and I am solely responsible for producing a statement that you are very pleased with.

As a specialist in the area of diversity, I find particular joy in helping to foster the representation of all ethnicities in our medical institutions. I think it is not only healthy for America to have a medical staff that was born all over the world, but it is also healthy for the planet. Over the course of the last 20 years, I have helped hundreds of residency applicants struggling to write their own statement in English as a second or foreign language, something that can be enormously difficult. You need a very well written, eloquent statement in order to be accepted. Much of your competition uses professional help, which gives them an edge. It would be prudent for you to get help as well.
