Sample 1st Paragraph for Indian Doctor, Residency Position in Ophthalmology

A medical doctor from India, I have been making my home in the USA for the past 4 years. For the past 8 years, first in India and now in America, I have given my all to my special passion for Ophthalmology.  I am a woman and a physician who could not be more dedicated to Ophthalmology, having long held special affection for the eye, sight, the joy and fullness of vision. Thus, I have spent my free time reading in this area for many years and I now hope very much to put it all to very good use upon being selected for a residency position in Ophthalmology. I seek a full immersion in Ophthalmology for the balance of my professional life as both a clinician and a researcher. It would be a special honor for me to be selected to serve at a major, university-affiliated hospital.

Ophthalmology Residents Advice

Sample 1st Paragraph for Residency in Ophthalmology. Ukrainian in Canada

Growing up in the Ukraine, the plight of the blind struck my soul from a very young age. I can remember how I would feel a slight tingling in my spine each time I encountered a visually impaired person. In my humble opinion, of all non-terminal disabilities or ailments, losing one’s ability to see is among the worst. Now that I have finished medical school here in Canada, I have decided to pursue a specialization in Ophthalmology because of my passion for eyesight and my dedication to this area in my own personal research and investigation.
