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.

Residency, Surgery, MPH

February 28, 2012


I feel strongly that I am fully qualified for a residency position with your program in the area of general surgery because of my intense dedication to my education and my work, lifelong education, struggling daily for constant improvement for years, I have achieved a very high degree of focus, patience, and I am a compassionate person that gets along very well with my colleagues. Becoming a surgeon has long been my life-long dream and the profound privilege of being accepted to join your team will that fulfill both my personal and career goals for which I have been laboring my entire life.
Born and raised in a small village in the southern part of India, I am a humble man who has always worked very hard to achieve his dream. My interest in medicine began to take shape in earnest as an adolescent when I watched my brother suffering from appendicitis. We were told that the operation must be done within 24 hours or that he would die; I will never forget the fear in my mother's eyes, especially since we had to travel several hundred kilometers in order to arrive at a hospital where the surgery could safely take place. On the way, I had fantasies of being able to operate on my brother myself, save his life, take the acute pain away from my mother. In my youthful mind the surgeon became a symbol almost like a god, being able to save lives. Since that time, I have worked very hard every day of my life to become the best possible surgeon.

 

There are still many villages like mine in India with little to no quality health care. It is my hope that in the future I will be able to return to India for periods of time to help develop medical facilities for the poor and underserved. I worked hard to get into medical school, Kasturba Medical College, among the top medical schools in India. I have learned to be highly adaptive, a quick learner who is comfortable treating people from all walks of life, I am highly adept with new cultures and an excellent communicator with people who speak in a broad variety of accents. India has so many languages and cultures that this helped me to refine this high degree of flexibility, quickly adapting to local languages so as to better understand patients feelings. Throughout my clinical rotations, I have vastly benefitted from my conversations with professors, physicians, and other senior health care workers who have been willing to share their professional knowledge and experiences with me. Sill only 28 years old, I still have a lot to learn but a lifetime ahead of me and a positive attitude, an open mind and heart, humility, diligence, perseverance, and a profound joy in serving others and laboring to make them well.

DOT [Directly Observed Treatment] Program for TB. With a good academic record, I enjoy learning and am very eager to become active in educational initiatives. Thriving on what I consider to be one of the greatest challenges of medicine, I have grown comfortable and confident speaking to patients and their families at times in their lives when they often feel panic and helplessness. I have two years of experience doing surgery rotations, where I have become highly adept at practicing the highest standards of clinical proficiency in surgery. I look forward with great zeal to participating in research in the future, medical writing and critical appraisal. I also learned a great deal about public health and medical issues here in America by completing two semesters in Health Studies At Texas Women's University in Denton. I also have taken credits in cultural diversity with a special emphasis on issues of diversity as they related to health care. In India, I was uncomfortable with the observation of how some health-care professional tend to burden patients with too much information or are not sufficiently open to hearing patient requests or questions, my educational experience in Texas has helped me to more fully appreciate the way in which patient-doctor dialogue is influenced by educational and especially cultural factors. A critical thinker with refined problem solving skills, and an excellent communicator, I am always compassionate to patients, serving as their advocate. My diverse life experiences have helped me to realize that I possess the determination, resilience, mental strength, and compassion to succeed as valuable asset to you medical team.
