Resumes and Personal Statements for Health Professionals
16 Tips for a Memorable Personal Statement (Edit your Personal Statement by Professionals)
1) Titles and subtitles help to tell your story. They also break up the page.
2) Grammar and spelling COUNT! This statement is YOU! Make sure it is clean, and free from errors. A carefully proofed personal statement is taken as a sign that the author is compulsive and thoughtful -just what the training program is looking for.
3) Don't be afraid to be YOU! No one will remember that your grade school teachers elected you most likely to become a doctor. They will remember the candidate that had to deliver a baby horse on a farm as a teenager. They will most definitely remember the candidate that ran for public office and lost or the one who was promoted in the field from medic to platoon leader. Too many good candidates persist in thinking that the statement is only for academic achievements and medically relevant stuff.
4) Use whatever stories help define you, your skills, your character. If you can find a way to work your career as a medical interpreter into your story or even a background in sales or your athletic skills.
5) Use the personal statement to highlight your accomplishments. You may want to dedicate some space in your personal statement for these accomplishments with its own title and a skipped line to make it stand out.
6) Whatever you do, don't just print out your curriculum vitae in the personal statement space. This is translated as "I had nothing to say so I thought I'd just plop this down here."
7) BEWARE the TOO SHORT PERSONAL STATEMENT. Having a pleasant amount a white space on the personal statement page is one thing. It makes the whole thing more readable. A 10 or 15 line personal statement is the quickest way to turn off a program. It says that your patient write-ups will also lack imagination and style.
8) PERSONALIZE your personal statement. Don't settle for telling your audience that there was a diverse population of patients where you trained. Tell them (briefly) some of the stories of the people you have treated. Doctors LOVE to read each other's war stories. You may even find that the stories form the basis for some of your interviews.
9) Don't make the classic writing mistake of beginning every sentence with "I". In fact, you must work hard to make the piece a good bit of writing. Every paragraph should have a topic sentence followed by two to three sentences that support the topic and then a concluding sentence. Every paragraph should build on the one before it. The first paragraph traditionally ought to tell the reader what you hope to prove and then the last paragraph should tie up to the first and show how you succeeded in telling them.
10) Have someone good read your personal statement and give you feedback.
11) The personal statement should fit on one side of one page. No one who reads hundreds of personal statements wants them to be long and drawn out.
12) There should be some white space on the page. A big box of words can be visually discouraging. If you want it to be read, make is appealing.
13) Never fawn. Never tell the program director that you are desperate or that he/she will be blessed if they accept you. This kind of behavior undermines your ability to be perceived as a quality doctor on your own terms. In fact, think as positively as possible. Believe it in your heart and make it clear that you consider yourself doing the program a favor by coming for an interview.
14) Avoid the same old clich?s. No program director wants to read 300 statements that begin, "I have wanted to be a doctor ever since I was treated by my family doctor."
15) Don't be afraid to be creative. Programs are looking for creative people. Creative people make good problem solvers. They are thought of as more able to handle emergencies. Use poetry (in limited quantities), religious stories, and flashbacks to your childhood. Use different narrative lines for effect like switching back and forth between the patient's point of view and yours.
16) Back up every descriptive thing you say. It's one thing to say, "I'm a team player." It is another thing entirely to say what makes you a team player. Describe the team you were on.
At the age of seventeen I was diagnosed with diabetes. My sophomore year in college, I did a presentation on diabetes, where i informed my peerson the symptoms and complications, and how to cope with the disease.

I attend many traning courses to update my skills. I'm also skilled in robotic surgery. I sit with children and burn victims at the chilren hospital that do not have famliy members or have famliy that are not able to make it due to distance, employment situations, or because they are children of the state.
I have volunteered my time at a women's clinic, the E.R., and the Special Olympics.I also have a B.S. in therapeutic Recreation.
I was in many organizations like Therapeutic recreation Society which focus on the importance of Recreational activites for people with disablities. Association for Women Students which focus on womens views and equal oppertunites for women in all aspects. Student Government Association which focus on politics.

Essay Instructions: I?m trying to apply into a business school and I would like you to help me prepare a good personal statement regarding: 1) reasons I want to do a graduate work in this field, 2) specific interests and experiences in this field, 3) any special skills or experiences that may relate to an assistantship, and 4) career plans.
I have three schools on my list- University of Massachusetts, Amherst, University of Connecticut, and University of Maryland. I?ll appreciate it if the writer can draft a questionnaire on what information he/she will need in order to write a good personal statement. Meanwhile, I?ll go ahead and provide some basic information.
I?m originally from Nigeria. I came to the United States in 1998 and I spent the next 1 year in the United States Navy. I joined the Navy because I wanted to get money for college, since my parents are immigrants, without any money to spare for my education. I was later discharged (honorably) from the Navy because I have Glaua, but I wasn?t able to get the college money- I ended up enrolling for classes at local munity college in fall, 1999. After one semester at the school, I made the dean?s list and was able to get a scholarship. I graduated from the school in 2001, with a 3.35 GPA and an associate degree in business. I then transferred all my credits to a college I was attending in Nigeria- before leaving for America (OLABISI ONABANJO UNIVERSITY). I also made the dean?s list at the school and I taught economics at the school?s learning center. I participated in numerous activities- such as rag day- a program where students dress up in rag clothes and travel throughout the state to collect donations for the poor. I graduated from the school in June 2002, with a 3. 63 grade point average, and a bachelor degree in economics.
WORK EXPERIENCE: I currently work as a front desk manager on duty/overnight account auditor for a Marriott hotel in Boston. I?ve been with the pany for 4 years. (I started working for the pany when I was still in college- as a security officer).
CAREER PLAN: Although my job at the Marriott is more into the managerial field, I?m planning on going into banking/finance (investment) and that?s one of the reasons I decided to get an MBA. I have a great stock portfolio and I trade stocks almost everyday.
PROGRAM: MBA/Finance concentration
Note: you can add other information that you think is going to make the statement look good. If you have any question, feel free to contact me at

Excerpt From Essay:
Essay Instructions: In this case study you will analyze someone you know (or use yourself!) by identifying physical, mental/emotional and social aspects of the individual. Please answer all questions and use the example from your case participant to write your “study.” Include all relevant information from the text and other articles (use APA format) to back up your thoughts. This is a critical analysis, so include both positive and negative aspects of this person (everyone has both!) Please make sure that your “client” remains anonymous, and that you can offer “sound” professional advice!
1. Patient Data
- Name, age social position in family, occupation
- How the person “presents”: are they clean, well mannered? What is their temperament like? Are they Type A or Type B? (What is it like for you to be with this person?)
- What is their eye contact like? Is speech rapid or slow? Do they move around a lot while talking? Do they like to “take charge” of the situation?
( male, 28, husband and father, manager of home health care agency, this person is extremely clean with his appearance, brushes his teeth twice a day, very particular with the way he dresses, but on the other hand messy eater, keeps his car messy, and doesnt bother him if his surroundings are messy as well. his temperament is very stable, doesnt have much anger issues or outbursts, but on the other hand he keeps all his stress and anxiety bottled in causing him sometimes to collapse emotionally. more of a type b person. for me to be with this person is pretty hard because he is disorganized, he has ADHD and ADD as well. he has no munication skills at all. He has a hard time finding an equal balance between family, work, and friends. Although he has a cellphone, he never picks up any calls, leaving friends and family pretty frustrated. although he is disorganized he is very smart and has amazing personality. he has many friends who iodiolize him and he is very successful at his job, he is very creative when it es to opening a new buisinees and as long as he has the right team to put final touches to the new business then he is successful in achieving a new business. currently he is managing a nursing agency of 500 employees and opening a new pharmacutical pany. because of his ADD and ADHD he can jump from project to project in order to keep himself busy and get that challanged feeling.
His eye contact is all over the place. When you talk to him, even though he looks at you his mind is elsewhere, people have to repeat what they are saying to him multiple times. His speech is regular. He moves around a lot while talking, he touches everything he sees while talking, and has to fiddle with an object as well while municating. He is not a “take charge” person, because he never finishes a project after he starts it. He automatically leans on his secretary and wife to plete his everyday tasks such as paying bills, returning important phone calls.)
2. Medical Diagnosis:
-Does the patient have any current debilitating diseases/disforts?
- Do they currently have diabetes, glaua, asthma?
- What are their eating/sleeping habits?
- Do they suffer from any past surgeries/ injuries?
(constant chest congestion and coughing due to the cigarettes smoking. He smokes about 3-4 cigarettes a day. he is a bit overweight due to the fast food he consumes on a daily basis. He had corrective eye surgery as a child and wore glasses up until the year 2011 when he had laser vision surgery to eliminate his need for glasses at all. He has ADD and ADHD but refuses to take medicine for it. He feels it clouds his thought process.)
3. Developmental Aspects of the patient:
- What is your perception of the client’s developmental level according to Erikson? (early adulthood, adolescence, late adulthood?)
- Is it appropriate for their chronological age?
- Are they successful in this stage or not? (eg: Generativity = successful, Stagnation = not successful) and what do you notice that indicates that they are successful or unsuccessful in terms of developmental stage?
(Please make up an answer here!)
4. What are your bio/psycho/social remendations for this client to improve his or her life, based on the above description?
