Personal Statement Essay

I want to be the best doctor I can be. I remember in third grade I was “doctoring” my family with a fake stethoscope, fake injections and a reflex hammer. Then in college while I worked as an EMS I found that the limitations of EMS personal reaffirmed my desire to become a doctor. I wanted to do so much more to help the patient. During medical school three things stand out that will shape me into the type of doctor I want to be. The first was a class assignment. We were given a case history to analyze. Then we

wrote up our diagnosis, our reasoning and the support of our reasoning. Out of a class of over 340 students my case write-up was chosen to be outstanding and I was given a personal letter from the SGU Pathology Chairman. The second thing that will stay with me forever is the time I spent at the Bel-Air Children’s Home which houses approximately thirty-five abandoned or orphaned children ranging from a few months old to teenagers. As a volunteer, I organized weekly visits, provided some toys and food, and raised awareness campus wide which resulted

in a greater involvement by the SGU

community. I also organized fundraisers and collected and donated $5000. I was amazed at how excited these children were to have us visit. How happy they were to receive a slice of pizza and a toy. How something as simple as our time made such a difference in their lives. One small child in particular wouldn’t go to the other volunteers or the caretakers. Yet she was happy when I held her. Why she chose me I do not know but her trust and faith was very spiritual for me. To work with my patients, to deserve this type of

trust as their doctor is my ultimate goal. The third was the hardest thing I ever had to do. My Grandmother became ill and died during exam week. We are a very tight knit traditional extended family and Grandmother lived with us. First, we had the difficult decision on whether or not to put her in Hospice care. I was far away from everyone in New Jersey and I am a pillar in my family. I needed to be strong for them. I had to take care of them with phone calls and e- mail instead of in person as I wished to. My grades for that week suffered but I never

lost my desire to be a doctor. I feel I would be a true asset to you residency program. I have always set high goals for myself and have always wanted to be the best at everything I have done. When I played basketball I was starting point guard and team captain. When I took the job of president of MSA, I strived to be the best president I could be. When I am accepted as an internal medicine resident I will be taking my final step towards becoming a doctor. I will be getting closer to my end goal of combining my MPH (Masters in Public Health)

and my M. D. and travel to underprivileged countries. I can implement public health while using my position as a doctor, providing health care in places that do not even have the basics. In this way I can combine my MPH and my MD and maximize their potency. I fully understand the time and dedication required of me as a resident. I look forward to becoming a Doctor of Internal Medicine which I chose because I was never happy specializing in one area as I believe that would sacrifice what I feel is the true essence of a doctor.
