I would like very much to be considered for a fellowship position in the area of pediatric genetics. I chose to become a pediatrician because I am especially interested in doing research in the areas of genetics and inherited diseases, as well as stem cell research. I also hope to become certified by American boards in pediatrics and genetics.
I completed an intensive summer training program during my second year of medical school. I also had the invaluable privilege of being a presenter of a health awareness campaign during my 4th year, while doing my rotations in family medicine. My project was directed to young adults in high school and toward the need for greater awareness concerning skin diseases, how to prevent them, and their psychological effects. Throughout the course of my one-year internship in medicine, I did rotations in surgery, pediatrics, ER, pathology, and obstetrics and gynecology. Next, I completed a one-year residency position in pediatrics and also served as a teaching assistant in this area. I came to the US to study on a scholarship and have finished steps one and two of the USMLE.
My long-term goal is to become a consultant and professor in the area of pediatric genetics. I want to pursue a carrier in academic teaching because I love leading group discussions and teaching students and interns.
I want to be accepted to your program, in particular, because I feel strongly that it is the best opportunity to excel in my field and realize my long-term ambitions.
Thank you for considering my application.
