  • Task: Help a med school student complete a personal statement for pediatrics residency applications
  • Challenge: Make statement so compelling that a student who hasn’t saved small villages in Africa from fire can compete for limited slots in pediatrics residency programs against other med students who have saved small villages in Africa from fire
  • More serious obstacle: Blank sheet of paper, overworked med school student, and less than two weeks to complete the essay
  • Solution: Writing consultation/coaching, editing services by Research Works
  • “Mariam’s editing services were invaluable in my career advancement.  I had to write a personal statement, but I greatly lacked the motivation to promote myself to anyone on paper, let alone in person.  I was impressed with the thoughtful and deliberate interview process that Mariam used to frame the personal statement.  She continued to coach me through the development of my statement in a way that clearly depicted my voice concisely and genuinely.  She is professional, and her talent and delivery are exceptional.” –Candace H, pediatrician, Columbus, OH
