Personal Statement of Purpose for entering into a quality Graduate Public Health Program with a US University

Applicant name: ***** *****


As I write this, thousands of miles from my homeland of , I think on the path that led me to Public Health.  I often wonder when people talk of healthcare disparities, if they can ever truly grasp what it means, what crushing poverty entails, and even what an underdeveloped nation looks like.  I was born and raised in the Niger Delta region of , a place where most people are suffering from one disease or another, conditions that are either unknown in the , or are highly preventable.  I never wondered who would help, or raise awareness; I was that someone.


To my mind, Public Health is the most important aspect of Medicine.  It can help prevent and bring solutions to health issues like no other field. In the delta region of , multinational oil companies have polluted the rivers and stream used by ordinary people for their livelihood.  The situation is dire.  People cannot fish nor do anything due the omnipresent oil polluting the water, choking oxygen and sunlight from sustaining ecosystems.  Compounding the problems are elevated illiteracy rates, and a general lack of preventative medicine and education results in rampant preventable diseases.  The health system needs serious reform and the right management.  Policy makers have failed to think long term and properly.  My people are suffering from neglect in all spheres of their existence as humans, especially in the health sector.  The outside world thinks on the ongoing plague of HIV/AIDS, but this is only one part of our massive set of issues.


currently has one of the highest infection rates of HIV/AIDS infection in the world and the trend continues. This is a result of poor policy and short sightedness. I am adamant that change must come. My studies in public health will go a very long way to helping me grasp the proper concepts and tools needed to work with the government to bring sustainable solutions to problems besieging the Niger Delta. I have lived in [Asia] for over ***** years studying medicine but that has not undermined my love for public health, Diseases like Malaria, microfilaria infection and other preventable diseases affect many people in this region.  Through my active volunteerism, distributing mosquito nets and repellant in Warri South, I have seen tangible success from even these humble efforts.  Change can come, and it need not be with an astronomical “price tag”.


Public health issues touch almost every family in my homeland, and sadly, my family is not an exception.  I come from a large family of ***** children and my ***** is dead today due to HIV/AIDS.  I know that if the health sector was better funded, better equipped and better managed with clear and effective policies, this kind of suffering could been avoided. Due to my love for public health, I am going to be a qualified medical doctor in just *****, but I want to go into public health because I believe strongly that I can contribute not only to my people but also to people all over the world. I have seen, firsthand people dying from typhoid or measles, and it sickens me.  Through proper interventions, planning and implementation of effective policies, I anticipate being able to bring about much-needed change through my work with an NGO or non-profit affiliated with the UN or directly through the Nigerian Ministry of Health.


My passion, academic ability, cultural competency, word travels and multilingual abilities practiced in a myriad of international experiences will contribute to the student body and graduate Public Health program.


I hope and pray my application for admission and financial aid will be given the most serious consideration.

Whether you are headed for a degree in epidemiology or environmental health, you have chosen to devote your life to the service of humanity. Your public health personal statement needs to communicate the depth of that commitment. While your test scores and grades are certainly essential admissions factors, your public health admissions essay is the best way for decision makers to get a complete picture of you. The voice and personality of your public health personal statement must, in straightforward but passionate terms, underscore the humanitarian drive that motivates you. EssayEdge helps you move your essay a step closer to successful graduate school admission and the degree that will make your goals a reality.

However, public health is a field in which it’s quite easy to get caught up in clichés and grand statements. Things like “curing disease,” “eradicating poverty,” “serving the underserved,” and “improving quality of life” may be real and noble goals of yours, but you likely share them with thousands of other applicants. Writing about them without taking steps to make your stories more focused and personal will lead to an essay that’s common and forgettable. When you’re trying to convince an admissions officer that you deserve acceptance over hundreds or thousands of other candidates, being forgettable could doom your chances.
