Family Practice Residency Personal Statement

Your family practice residency application

But getting onto the residency program that you want is not going to be that easy. Almost all residency programs that are available are heavily oversubscribed and being able to get accepted will require an outstanding application. But most residency programs are not just going to make their decisions based on who has the best grades or which qualifications they got from which schools. They want to know who you are as a person and why it is that you really want to follow a career through a family practice residency. This often means that your family practice residency personal statement is going to be the most important factor in your application.

What do you need to apply for your family practice residency

Like most other residencies your application and selection will likely be run through the national residency matching program more often referred to as just the match. Your application will be made through the Electronic Residency Application Service or ERAS although some residencies will require a personal application.

You will have to provide usually all of the following:

  • Your family practice residency personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation – usually 2 or 3
  • An up to date resume
  • Transcripts from your medical school
  • ECFMG status report for overseas applicants
  • USMLE transcript
  • MSPE – Medical student performance evaluation
  • Fifth pathway certificate for overseas students

Carefully check the specific residency that you wish to apply to so that you ensure that you provide exactly the information that they are asking for and that you meet the specific required deadlines for your application.

Writing an effective family practice residency personal statement

To do this you not only have to tell the reader what they want to know about you wanting to follow a family practice residency but also write in a manner that is going to keep them riveted to your page. To do this you need to:

  1. Open with a hook – a personal anecdote, fact or quotation that is relevant and can get their attention right from the start.
  2. Ensure that the statement has a logical flow from start to finish to keep them reading through.
  3. Be concise with your writing, if you need 20 words to say something don’t use 100.
  4. Do not use clichés, words that are difficult to understand, acronyms or state the obvious.
  5. Carefully proofread to ensure that there are no errors in your writing that will distract from your message.
