    Hi there!

    We say that your Medicine PS should cover motivation, exploration and suitability - and should be structured in this way:

    - Why I want to be a doctor (motivation)
    - Work experience (exploration)
    - Volunteering (exploration)
    - Wider reading and study (exploration)
    - Extracurricular (suitability)
    - Conclusion (motivation)

    A good way to start might be to make notes on the above sections - for example, note down any relevant work experience you've had and what you learned on your placements; note down why you want to study medicine; your extracurriculars etc.

    You can also read much more on our Medicine Personal Statement guide.

    Hope this helps!
