Question Putting my research experience in ERAS

Hi

I have two questions

-I participated in a study a couple of years ago and I got an official certificate from the center where this study was conducted stating that I served as a research assistant in this particular study. The study was published in a meeting Journal in University of Sydney as a poster but my name is not on it, only the primary Author's name. Should I use this study in my research experience in ERAS application? And how good this study is since it is published in some journal outside USA?

-During my elective in USA I participated in a case report ( Clinical Vignette ) that was submitted and accepted in ACP Michigan chapter as a poster presentation, but it is not published anywhere except mentioning it's name and the primary Author's name ( not me ) in their website. Is it OK to use this as a research experience in myERAS?

Please help me with this .. I am really confused and I don't want this to affect my application

You can choose, "poster presentation" in the research section of ERAS.

Yes, you can mention it even if your name was not there.
Any research activity is good, even if it is outside USA.
