Medicine Personal Statement
Online Crash Course
The best personal statement crash course for students applying to medical school, created by students at the University of Cambridge. Now available as a 9-lesson online course with videos, booklets and tonnes of examples.
You might look at this page and say to yourself, “Oh, it’s just another Personal Statement Course?” It is just going to be someone giving me generic advice to apply to medical school.
I don’t blame you – that’s exactly what I would think if I was reading this for the first time.
If you are looking for generic advice about applying to medical school, this course is not for you!
Instead, this is my tried and tested method that I used to write my personal statement. This helped me get all 4 interviews for medical school and subsequently all 4 offers.
If you are determined to get into medical school and prepared to put in the hard work, then let me teach you how to write your best personal statement, using the strategies I used myself.
What makes your course different?
A quick question. Would you rather get generic out of date advice from someone who is reading a script or specific strategies from someone who got all 4 offers from medical school!
With my course, we do not start with the personal statement straightaway. You need to understand that writing a top statement requires months of preparation, work experience and learning how the admissions tutors think.
By doing this, you’ll not only write a top statement, but develop a mindset that significantly boosts your chances of getting into medical school. At least, that’s what happened for me.
Detailed Analysis line-by-line and feedback
Using in-depth examples and gaining extensive advice throughout, we analyse examples line-by-line. By the end of this course, you will be able to critique statements like an admissions tutor.
The key to this course is detail. We dedicate one lesson for each section – the opening paragraph, work experience, academic interests, extra-curricular and the conclusion. Learn how to develop these components and then tie them together to create a flow.
Are you not convinced?
If you are reading this, then like me, you have not been convinced by what I’ve said.
So why not test it out for yourself. Get free access to one of my lessons, the PERSONAL STATEMENT BASICS. This lesson covers the qualities that admissions tutors are looking for and how you can demonstrate these qualities.
