I am a 24-year-old Iranian man, born in Miami, where I lived before moving to Iran with my family at the age of eleven. My parents had always spoken to me in English, and significant challenges-built determination and strength of character. This made me highly motivated to become a physician. Medical doctors were my childhood heroes and my most significant role models. We moved back to Miami when I was seventeen and I completed high school here in the USA. I now have a BS Degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry. and Spanish
I now have a BS Degree in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Spanish from the University of XXXX, graduating in 2006. Last month, in July of 2007, I completed my MS in Biomedical Science from XXXX University. My MS Degree is the single most vital aspect of my application. I found my anatomy lab particularly fascinating and my studies excellent preparation for medical school. I always performed my dissections diligently, trying to unveil as many structures as possible. I often spent an hour looking for a particular delicate nerve or vessel when my group members insisted on moving to the next objective. Usually, I found what I was looking for. As a doctor, I am a determined individual who will never give up on his patients. Health is the most valuable blessing one can receive, enabling us to enjoy our surroundings and find satisfaction in our accomplishments. This is why practicing medicine will be such immense joy, the privilege of returning a sick person to health, restoring the happiness that has been lost to illness, and giving someone additional time to share with loved ones.
I have my heart set on becoming a surgeon; I am not yet sure which area of surgery I will wish to specialize in, although I find Otolaryngology inspiring. I am most attracted to the challenge represented by surgery, which sustains my determination. Practicing medicine is my vocation, fulfilling my sense of destiny through service to others. I see surgery as an art form and a spiritual exercise, something that one constantly struggles to improve and further develop. I like hands-on work and interaction with patients, and I want to spend the balance of my life treating patients. I admire and respect challenging work and the opportunity to confront profound difficulties and challenges. I look forward to your medical program's rigorous character and emphasis on research preparedness. Medicine is where science and art come together, and I keenly aspire to a broad-based and thorough education in the scientific foundations of medicine.
My mother's uncle, Dr. XXXX, helped to inspire me. While practicing medicine in Tehran, he still found time to visit a nearby village and to tend to poor people, often in his home, inviting extended families to spend several days with him, living and dining in his large guest house with a garden, treating them one at a time in his basement clinic, all free of charge. I aspire to provide a similar type of service to others. My long-term goal is to have surgery practice in a suburban area while devoting some of my time each year to benefit the medically underserved. My dream of serving the medically underserved has motivated me to minor in Spanish and continue to spend copious amounts of time increasingly perfecting my use of this language. I am someone who celebrates America's diversity and often communicates exceptionally well with other multicultural individuals. I feel strongly that knowing other languages and having the privilege of extended interactions with people from many cultures will help me to be able to provide optimal treatment for members of these cultures who are my patients.
I have long been incredibly determined, and my dream of becoming a doctor has been my central driving force. I am a very mature and emotionally stable individual. I am a strong candidate for medical school, partly because of my positive attitude and enormous dedication to my work and how much I look forward to the rigors of this instruction. I look forward to spending the balance of my professional life aiding in constructing a more equitable and effective healthcare system. I am attracted to working internationally with an organization like Doctors Without Borders. My dream is to be a positive influence and force in society by working to improve the quality of health care in my community. I am a cosmopolitan young man who still visits relatives in Iran and is quite familiar with international problems and issues, especially concerning the developing world. I have traveled to Holland, France, the Caribbean, and, most recently, Costa Rica. I plan to move to a Latin American country for an extended visit before beginning medical school to strengthen my Spanish skills further because it is essential to become an excellent doctor in this language.
I want to thank you for your consideration of my application to medical school.
