Personal Statement Workshop for Residency

Postby kaplandallas » 03 Mar 2009, 13:13

Picture this scenario:

A residency program director is reviewing your Match application and another person's application. Both candidate's USMLE scores are the same, both have excellent U.S. clinical experience, and both have excellent letter's of recommendation. The other application component that can truly separate you and the other candidate before the interview process is the Personal Statement.

The Personal Statement is an extremely important component of the Match application process. It may not seem very difficult to write a personal statement, but there are certain things program directors want to see and expect. Before you blindly dive into writing your personal statement, come find out the do's and don'ts of the crucial piece of the application and what can set you a part from other candidates applying for the Match!

The Dallas Kaplan Center invites you to a Free Personal Statement Workshop!
When: March 18th @ 6pm
