Family Medicine Residency PS Example, Pakistani Doctor

Updated: Jan 25

I was born in Pakistan, where human misery is evident even to a small child, and I found myself affected by the suffering I saw around me. I was determined at an early age, therefore, to spend my life helping those who suffer. I regard my decision to be a physician to be a vocation rather than a mere career choice.

I achieved the highest scores in Pediatrics and Obstetrics in my year and regard these achievements as relevant to my application. I firmly believe that a positive family environment is the foundation of healthy children and that this effect is cumulative over generations. Consequently, I have decided to maximize my effectiveness as a physician by pursuing Family Medicine. I have become even more convinced of this choice since the birth of my child three years ago.

I have carefully considered the characteristics required of an excellent Family Medicine practitioner, and I believe I possess them. I understand that a ‘holistic’ approach is needed, being sensitive to emotional and physical symptoms and calling for a genuine interest in the patient’s family background and social and work environments with high-order diagnostic skills. The specialty also demands a high degree of sensitivity, patience, cultural awareness, and empathy that I possess. I am also very interested in preventative and proactive interventions to promote good health. I have become susceptible to non-verbal signals during consultations and see this as particularly important in Family Medicine.

I am widely traveled and have been exposed to people of many cultural and social backgrounds and can relate easily with them. I also possess a highly developed sense of humor. I am very interested in assisting with research, and my particular interest is in the prevention and treatment of pediatric diabetes. I believe I have the traits of determination and curiosity that will enable me to succeed in research.

I know there will be many well-qualified applicants for this famous specialty, but I genuinely believe I am an exceptional candidate. I have an excellent academic record; I am multi-lingual; I have the necessary personal traits for this specialty, but my main recommendation is my passionate determination to become a highly effective Family Medicine practitioner.
