Medical Residency Internal Medicine, Venezuela

August 30, 2014

A wise mentor once taught me the secret behind internal medicine’s role as a specialty within medicine. Its non-surgical key to being a diagnostic discipline lies in expert history-taking and skilled patient examination. Simple, but true; this observation by a compassionate doctor from my native city impacted my life such that this became my career goal. Listen, observe, examine, question: these skills have shaped my clinical judgment, forged empathic conduct towards patients and anchored my resolve in the pursuit of excellence as a clinician. Venezuelan by birth, raised and educated in that country, on finishing medical school, I embraced internal medicine as a career. This epitomized my vocation-everything a doctor was meant to be- integrating abilities, skills, intellectual curiosity with a spirit of compassion.

Motivated by advances in the field to study further, I enrolled in a postgraduate course in rheumatology in my home country, before entering the research arena in the United States in 2001 at the Mayo Clinic, where under the supervision of Dr XXXX, I studied the processes of cellular senescence in hematopoietic cell lineages in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and healthy individuals. Investigating the role of dendritic cells in autoimmune diseases with a grant from The Myositis Association (TMA) under Dr. XXXX, to specifically explore the pathogenic role of plasmocytoid dendritic cells in immunopathogenesis of juvenile dermatomyositis, was the next task. Those studies led to various publications in which I am an author and strengthened my motivation to bring together my clinical training and research experience to the patient’s bedside by entering a residency program in internal medicine in the United States.

My long-term goal is to be an internal medicine specialist in a primary care setting, delivering outstanding patient care and undertaking clinical research. As a native Spanish speaker, fluent in English who has lived on two different continents, I believe that I have a broadened worldview to relate to patients from diverse socio-cultural backgrounds. Having invested many hours in volunteer health services in Venezuela and worked through community organizations like CareFest to improve the living circumstances of the underprivileged, I am passionately committed to helping patients in my community who would benefit most from my expertise. I believe that I am an excellent candidate for the residency program in internal medicine given my established level of clinical skill and research experience. I trust that you afford me the opportunity.
