Statement of Purpose
Ever since I was a young girl, I have always been curious about the existence of numerous microorganisms that we as human beings are unable to see or perceive. Based on the countless advertisements I saw regarding bacteria and how they affect our health, my interest fueled by my curiosity continued to grow despite my youthful age. I would try as considerably as possible to see whether these commercials were true regarding the existence of organisms that were invisible to man’s naked eyes. From that moment I learnt that there are other micro species scouring the same life that we live. Hence, in that instance, I immediately took an interest in discovering more regarding these unseen creatures and the manner in which they affect our daily lives. As such, my resolve has led me towards applying for a Masters’ Degree in Clinical Microbiology in your university.
In spite of my background as a doctor, I am convinced that pursuing this course will aid me further in my prospective career and my life in general. Normally, the general perception of people, in relation to my career, is that doctors are capable of curing all forms of diseases and ailments. However, based on my practice, this statement is just a mere stereotype. In order to satisfy my curiosity, I studied throughout college to become a doctor. In my years of learning, I discovered that microorganisms were the main reason for the illnesses that individuals suffered. By working on cases involving numerous vector-borne and air-borne diseases, I learnt that efficient treatment correlates profoundly with understanding the root cause of the respective illness. Based on this epiphany, I learnt that ensuring my patients were served better required me to possess extensive knowledge regarding microorganisms, which have been the causative agents of virtually all diseases.
Studying clinical microbiology in your university will be a significant opportunity for me to not only further my life and career, but also to be more knowledgeable. Despite having a Bachelors’ Degree in the same, I still believe that there is considerable ground that I have not covered concerning this line of study. Over the years, microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses are consistently evolving at a rapid rate. Currently, microbiologists and physicians alike have discovered that certain bacteria possess the unusual ability to create resistance to contemporary forms of medications such as antibiotics. Hence, in this respect, it is evident that the golden epoch of antibiotics has arrived at an abrupt end due to the dynamic nature of microorganisms. Based on this fact, I am certain that studying for a Masters’ Degree in Clinical Microbiology will further equip me with the knowledge and the ability to serve my patients better and to grow professionally as a physician.
To this end, pursuing this course in your university will enable me to accomplish the aforesaid objectives. I believe that the school possesses an environment that will motivate me to follow my interests personally and professionally. Moreover, due to your interdisciplinary approach towards medicine and microbiology complimented by your outstanding facilities, I am certain that studying the course in your respective institution will provide me with the knowledge to accomplish my studies and become an even better physician to my patients. Even with my credentials and my desire to pursue this particular course, it will still be impossible for me to become a great physician and person without the necessary environment. In conclusion, your university will be the perfect setting to aid me in successfully pursuing and completing a Masters’ Degree in Clinical Microbiology.
