Do You Need Help to Write That Perfect Residency Personal Statement?
As Khaled Hosseini once told us: “Qualities you need to get through medical school and residency: Discipline. Patience. Perseverance. A willingness to forgo sleep. A penchant for sadomasochism. Ability to weather crises of faith and self-confidence. Accept exhaustion as fact of life. Addiction to caffeine a definite plus. Unfailing optimism that the end is in sight.” So you may be wondering if you really want to write that perfect medicine personal statement to get onto your chosen residency.
Once you have gained your medical degree (M.D., D.O., MBChB, MBBS, or BMed) you will have to undergo further training before you will be able to practice on your own with a license. A residency provide you with in depth training within a specialist field of your choice under the supervision of an attending physician. Only when you have completed your residency will you be able to gain your license to practice medicine or even continue into additional training with a fellowship.
Gaining a place however is a far from easy proposition. In 2017 there were over 43,000 applicants registered to find a place through the NRMP Match, of those just under 32,000 were offered a place. It is therefore a very competitive area in which to gain a place to continue your education and you will have to ensure that your application can really make you stand out if you want to gain a place.
Most important of your application documents is your residency personal statement. Often there will be little to choose between you and many others when it comes to qualifications so how you present yourself in your residency or fellowship personal statement will have a major impact on your chances of being selected. This is why you may want to consider using our specialist help with writing your personal statement to gain an effective edge over your competition.
Residency Application Requirements
Your application for residency will be made through ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service.) You will be able to upload all of the information that the different residencies are looking for through your MyERAS login rather than applying to many different residencies individually. Places are then awarded through the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP Match) depending on your preferences and the preferences of the residency programs you are applying to.
International Medical Graduates (IMG) students will also have to apply for ECFMG (Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates) certification. This will require you to undertake the USMLE (United States Medical Licensing Examination) which is the same exams as local applicants will have to undertake.
The following is a list of the main information that you will be providing through your ERAS application:
- Electronic ERAS application
- Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE)
- Transcripts from your medical schools
- Letters of Recommendation (LoR), usually you will nominate 3 authors
- USMLE results
- ECFMG status report for overseas applicants
- California letter for those applying to the state (PTAL – Postgraduate Training Authorization Letter)
- ERAS personal statement
