Question Where to put Observeship in ERAS?

Hi all,

1. Where am I supposed to put my observership experience under Application section? Does it come under the heading EXPERIENCE, with Experience type being Volunteer??

2. The application says once you submit it, you wont be able to make changes. So how can I enter my future observership experience in the application?

Thank you

Yes put it under volunteer experience.

Some people say that you can put Externship under the education tab, but I disagree, externship should as well go under the volunteer experience.

Once you finalize the application you cannot make changes, if you will have more observerships, you can mention it in an updated personal statement or email the programs and tell them that you want to update them about your new experiences.
