I believe the personal statement is a personal introduction to the program you are applying. Of course you have to show interest for medicine but make it personal. I think they wanna see that personal touch on you because otherwise you have your scores and experience that shows that you will be able to be a smart doctor. I got some help from them. Good luck

I have some helpful tips for writing a personal statement:

1. Always keep in mind the aim of your personal statement.

2. You should not wait until the last minute, but go through various drafts.

3. Make use of a one central theme for your personal statement.

4. Arrange your essay in a logical way. It will be helpful in making an outline before you start writing.

5. Highlight particular, different accomplishments of which you are gratified. Give detailed information!

Overall, these tips are really helpful, but if you are still not satisfied, then you can use residency personal statements for writing your PS. Their services are very effective.
