For as many applicants as possible, I draft the first part of your Statement completely free of charge to promote my service. More than half of these applicants decide to commission me to finish drafting the entire statement. This is how I support myself and my only child Davy Dylan, laying a little something aside for his future.

Cardiology Fellowship, African Man

May 17, 2012

 


I was born, raised, and went to medical school in Ethiopia where most modern medical tools such as CT scans and MRIs were simply not available. Nevertheless, my professors insisted that the most important medical information is always obtained from interviews with and observation of the patients. I decided to come to the US for further training and experience because this is where the latest advances in medicine are being made. I have now had the opportunity to build on the basic skills that I learned in medical school and to learn about the latest medical advances throughout the course of my residency program.

I decided to concentrate first and foremost on cardiology and have been working very hard to learn everything that I can about cardiovascular disease and its treatment.  I have been working in a hospital since finishing my residency program and have continued to develop my special interest in the study of the human heart and the challenges that it represents to the field of medicine. Over the course of the last year-and-a-half, I have been doing research projects. One of my papers was selected for poster presentation at the American Society of XXXX annual conference in Denver, another paper of which I am a co-author  is submitted for publication to the Clinical Journal of American Society of XXXX. Currently I am in discussions with one of the cardiologists at XXXX to do research on subjects including OSA and diastolic dysfunction, investigating the benefit of treatment of diastolic dysfunction in accordance with current guidelines.

I have extensive experience working in difficult and dangerous situations;  working in Somalia, for example, where I directed the rebuilding and operation of a hospital that had been closed because of war. Next, I ran a medical service in a camp for Rwandan refugees in Tanzania

I want to study cardiology because cardiology requires dedication, precision, a lot of hard work and good technical skills, I have known that I wanted to be a cardiologist since medical school, working in physiology lab where I learned about Einthoven's triangle and when I first saw echocardiograms. I believe that I have the necessary skills and high level of motivation to become an excellent cardiologist. I am a very dedicated and hardworking physician, with a solid background of medical knowledge  and experience. I possess advanced procedural skills and work extremely well with my colleagues, I have always treated patients with the greatest respect and dignity always placing a top priority on their safety. I also have good written and communication skills.

I have been inspired by the example of the early cardiologists who labored to identify and treat complex cardiac problems on the basis of a simple physical examination, looking at jugular venous waves or palpating carotid arteries. And I learned a great deal throughout my years in internal medicine at XXXX Hospital. I have acquired a great deal of experience treating patients with cardiac problems at the XXXX where the patient population is older and the majority of patients suffer from heart disease, I have always strived to improve my physical exam skills especially auscultation. It is my hope you will find me a suitable candidate for your cardiology fellowship program and I hope to have the opportunity to give my all to your program.
