Question Undergraduate Internship - where to list it in ERAS?

For international medical graduates who had an undergraduate internship year, where should we list it in ERAS? under Training or under Experience?

Thank you.

it is not a part of undergraduate education in your country Egypt. Although you receive the diploma in the middle of it or after you finish it. It is written on Diploma that you finished your education after the 6th year.
Put it under experience.

If the internship year is part of your educational curriculum and you cannot receive your final diploma without it then you put it under education.

If the internship year is not part of your curriculum and you can get your diploma without it then you put it under experience.

If it's postgraduate, shouldn't it go under Residency > Transitional?

Btw, in my medical school (mansoura), it's considered an undergraduate course.

I think education refers to PRE-med school courses like those taken by Americans before entering med school. My internship followed my final year in med school, but is officially an undergraduate course. I put it under Work Experience. Some people suggest listing it under Training > Residency > Transitional.

Your internship year in your country is NOT ACGME accredited and therefore you cannot put it under residency section in ERAS (that section is for AMGs and for IMGs who have done US residencies before).

In ERAS, Education refers to anything you have done before you graduate (i.e. curriculum requirement in your medical school).

It does not matter what your country think of your internship, undergrad or postgrad. What matters is what the ECFMG and US residency programs think of your internship. I mentioned the answer to what they think of your internship in my previous post.
