I am a young Jewish-Russian man who has known for many years that his calling is that of a physician, and medicine has been the center of my interests for several years. Since I am fluent in Spanish (as well as Russian), I feel especially attracted to the idea of living and studying in the Caribbean. I am someone who worships progress and I like being part of new. Thus, I am very much look forward to studying at the still very new XXXX College of Medicine. I am pleased that the York State Department of Education has recently approved your program so that your students are eligible for clinical training in that state. I look forward to the relaxing beauty and tranquility of the what you provide: a medical education equal to the highest U.S. medical education standards, an optimal preparatory experience for the U.S. Medical Licensing Examinations, and an excellent foundation for postgraduate specialty training in the U.S. I feel strongly that medicine is my calling and that I will be among the most highly committed of doctors to the health and well-being of my patients. I am profoundly dedicated to hard work and look forward to giving my all to your program.
I am thankful that I immigrated with my family at only 6 years old; this way, it was easy for me to adjust to English. I have now been out of school for well over a year and I want very much to return to professional studies. While my undergraduate degree is in Economics rather than the physical sciences, in order to prepare myself for medical school, I have also studied intensively at the Community College of Baltimore County, taking pre-medical classes in Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Microbiology, Molecular Biology I, Medical Terminology and I am currently taking Inorganic Chemistry II and Physics. Also, to further prepare myself for medical school, since August of 2003, I have worked as a Personal Home Care Provider, administering medication to patients and attending to other needs as well. In fact, throughout these last four years, I have worked two jobs, both in the field of health care, also working as an Office Assistant for XXXX Healthcare Clinics, maintaining and scheduling appointments, etc. I have also volunteered my time at the University of Maryland Medical Center Shock Trauma Unit.
The single most important factor that draws me to study medicine in your program in particular is the hands-on learning that is provided from the first semester forward. I am enormously excited about the privilege of accompanying attending physicians on rounds and having patient contact at the hospital throughout medical school, not just towards the end of my training. I cannot over emphasize how important this is to me. I will be enormously proud to attend the first medical school in the Caribbean with a U.S.-model medical education that functions along with a fully integrated hospital. This speaks to the spirit and moral fiber of your institution as well. I am a sports enthusiast and I also look forward to the many recreational opportunities available in XXXX, since intense outdoor exertion returns me to my labors refreshed with abundant energy. I look forward to a long and fulfilling life helping people. I am ambitious, a quick learner, personable, and a team player. I feel strongly that the greatest contribution that I might be able to make to society would be to dedicate my life to helping people overcome their ailments.
I want to thank you for your consideration of my application.
