The Personal Statement

Writing Your Medical School Personal Statement

There is so much that needs to go into your personal statement. You need to stand out. You need to sell to the admission committee why you want to be a doctor. You need to cover any red flags in your application. Maybe most of all you need to tell a great story about YOU.

Remember, when you start writing your personal statement FOR the admission committee, it is no longer a PERSONAL statement. You need to write about you, and not what you think the admissions committee members what to read.

Great Resources

Below are several podcast episodes I’ve done on the topic – take a listen to each of them and hopefully you’ll take something valuable away to help you create a great story.
