Medical School Personal Statement
I have always dreamt of pursuing a career in medicine. This is a field which is always in need of highly trained and skilled individuals who can truly make a difference. As an aspiring medical professional, I have applied to this medical school as I believe that it offers the best training and education in this field currently.
My interests lie in the area of cardiology and I want to pursue specialised education in this field. However, I also believe in complementing theory with practice and for me, the actual hands-on training that I will receive in my internship will be of more value to classroom lectures and seminars. I am capable of maintaining the objectivity which is a prerequisite in this profession and I will not let my emotions sway my rationality. I will also preserve the humanitarian base of this profession and thus I consider myself an apt student of this ancient profession.
