How to end a medicine personal statement

Congratulations! You’ve successfully summarised your experiences, achievements and interests into just under 4000 characters. Like writing an essay it’s important to summarise your key points (clinical and personal experience) and relate them back to the central theme of the essay (why you want a place at Medical School and why you’ll make an excellent Doctor).

Why is a good conclusion important?

As much as the first impression is crucial, the last impression is very important as well. You need to make sure the admission officers that will read your personal statement are left feeling like you are the right candidate. And that’s why you need to sum up or all the facts that make you a great future Doctor!

What should I include in the conclusion?

The best way to conclude your personal statement is to loop back to what you were writing about in the introduction. Do not just rewrite it, but reinforce why you think you are a good candidate based on your qualities and your deep interest in Medicine.

The conclusion should include the following: 

  • A list of your positive attributes and qualities
  • Your view on Medicine and motivation based on your experience (don’t forget – refer to your previous experience here)
  • Your interest in Medicine

How long should the conclusion be?

Try and keep the conclusion to 3 or 4 lines, you shouldn’t be introducing too much new information at this point. Remember – use the conclusion as an opportunity to remind the admissions tutors why everything you’ve written about makes you so fantastic and worthy of a place at their Medical School!
