What services does Residency Statement offer?

Residency Statement offers two types of Personal Statement services, Writing (S-WS) and Editing (S-ES). Editing is best for applicants who have written a Personal Statement and need an Editor to review and revise their document to fit professional ERAS standards. Writing is for applicants who prefer that a Writer drafts an original Personal Statement from scratch, based on each individual’s personal background and experiences.

What makes your services different from other online Personal Statement services?

Residency Statement is a trusted veteran of Personal Statement services, depended on by over 20,000 residency candidates for 13+ years. We are a fully US-based company, and everything we do revolves around being the model of quality, integrity, efficiency, and care for our members. We ensure that each statement we work on will meet and exceed expectations. Unlike other services, we don’t charge extra for multiple revisions or higher word counts - as we work with you until you are satisfied and confident in your statement. Residency Statement doesn’t believe in using meaningless superfluous words and fluff in your statement. Our team uses concise and professional diction, while still retaining your authentic voice and including engaging details.

When should I submit my Personal Statement for Writing or Editing?

We suggest preparing your Personal Statement very early on in the application season--as early as June! As with all aspects of your Match application, the Personal Statement can be time-consuming. Submitting your statement at least 4-6 weeks before ERAS releases applications will give you ample time for getting feedback and revising your statement before finalization with your Writer or Editor. Don’t wait until the last minute to submit! Prices are lowest at the beginning of the season, and starting early will save you time and prevent unneeded stress.

How do I communicate with my Editor or Writer?

You are welcome to message your Writer or Editor at any time through Residency Statement’s in-house Messaging System, accessed through your Member Dashboard.

Can I communicate with my Writer or Editor via telephone, Zoom, or personal email?

No. The entire process is completed through our secure website to best ensure the protection of our members and professional team. If you need to speak with someone over the phone, you can call our Support Team to consult with an advisor.

How qualified are the Editors?

Our Writers and Editors have strong medical writing backgrounds and are rigorously trained in the art of Personal Statements for medical residency. Everyone on our staff is well-versed in the nuances of the medical residency application process and the intricacies involved in writing about differing specialties.

Do you use templates?

No templates are used in the creation or editing of any Personal Statement.

Can Program Directors tell I used a Writing/Editing service?

Absolutely not. The goal of any Personal Statement is to illuminate the subject-- you! Writers/Editors and members work closely together to produce a cohesive, original document as unique as you are.

Why can’t I use one Personal Statement for other specialties?

Program Directors prefer applicants who demonstrate dedication and commitment to their specialty. The Personal Statement is the best way for you to achieve that. Also, each medical specialty involves different roles and responsibilities and requires specialized medical knowledge, skills, and personality traits. Generic Personal Statements are a serious red flag and communicate a lack of passion and effort.
