You want your personal statement to reflect who you are and why you would like to have a career in medicine/dentistry. This workshop will guide you through the process of planning and writing your personal statements for your MD, DO and MD/PhD applications.

We are offering this workshop in a hybrid format - in-person and virtually.

If you are on the Bethesda campus, we strongly encourage you to attend in-person. Masks are encouraged.

Trainees on other campuses and those who can’t attend in-person can join the workshop virtually.
