Biomedical Science Personal Statement Example 1

The way in which the human body works and how it’s perfectly adapted to this world something unmatched in its wonder. The most prestigious gift that we human beings have been bestowed with is to save and change lives. I am passionate about Biology and enjoy the intellectual challenge it involves. What fascinates me most about the human body is how it is constantly overcoming challenges in its battle for survival. I want to be able to explore the world of human biology and strive to find out more about our species and how I would be able to use my knowledge and understanding to help others in need.

Genetics and immunology are other aspects of biology that I find thrilling. Recently, there had been great excitement in the field of the T cell gene therapy. The HIV was genetically altered to enable T cells to attack cancerous cells, without the virus causing disease to the host and cured a young girl from leukaemia. The very fact that scientists and doctors were able to isolate the particular reason why the virus was so deadly- its attack on immune cells- and use it instead to save lives, was what made this particular introduction to medical healthcare so amazing to me.

For my GCEs I have chosen Biology to help me get an in-depth understanding of how and the human body functions the way it does. I have also chosen Chemistry as it would help my laboratory and practical skills which are vital in the biomedical field. I have also taken A Level Physics and Mathematics as I believe this would boost my logical and problem solving abilities.
Aside from my passion for science I am also a lover of arts and an avid reader and enjoy reading educational magazines (Natural Geographic for example) as I find them stimulating and helps me keep up with the dynamic nature of science and the world around us. Having a flair for creative writing, I have won prizes at school English Day for my essays. This passion of mine also gave me the privileged to be a part of the editorial board of ’WIDSOM’, my school’s magazine.

I was a member of the senior debating team for my house. This was an experience which exposed me to how people view and react to various problems, and allowed me to develop my communication as well as team-working skills. I have been the vice captain for my house and also the deputy Head Girl. These privileges and responsibilities given to me showed that they trusted me to serve our school, by helping to lead my peers and coach younger students, in addition to maintaining discipline. These duties helped me hone my leadership skills and ability to work with those around me, as a part of an efficient team. I was also a member of the Girls' Association in School and was elected class representative thrice. Through this I learned to organize events and became acutely aware of what others required of me.

I have also organised a visit to the King Faisal University Hospital in Riyadh. I expect to be able to observe the day-to-day experience of medical and biomedical professionals, how work is conducted in the hospital’s laboratories (including the pathology laboratories) and how the doctors and lab technicians together work to provide necessary treatment for their patients. I believe this will give me further knowledge about biomedicine and a better insight into what exactly the biomedical field requires of me

I look forward to the opportunity to become part of a university community that would mould me in the best way possible so that I emerge fit and able to help others using health care. I am confident I would be able to work well with others work hard to contribute to a university that chooses me. . As a woman of faith, I hold dear the following saying from my religion, “Every disease has a cure”. This saying gives me great hope and determination to help improve the health of mankind.
