Listening Technician in Diagnostic Cardiology

Worked for 2 years from 2010 to 2012 as a technician in Diagnostic Cardiology Private Facility with some of top cardiologists in NY, and top 10 in US.

My duties in the Clinic: History taking and Physical examinations of the patients before dg procedure and all patients note after procedure was done; EKG interpreting; All regular and nuclear stress tests (exercise or pharmacological type) performing; dobutamine stress muga; tilt table test; T wave test; Holter monitoring test and holter readings; Cardiac Pet Scan with dipyridamole or dobutamine; etc etc.....Most of the tests done by myself sometimes under cardiologists supervision..

How should I write this on MY ERAS? Where ( in which section) belongs my med experience in US!?

Thank you!

If you were paid, then put it under experience.
If you were not paid, then put it under volunteer.

It will be considered USCE for sure.

I'm not so sure it will be counted as "USCE" since you were not in a physician role. Yes, you did H&Ps, but for patients who were being sent in for diagnostic studies. However, it will definitely look great on your ERAS application. If I had done anything of the sort, I would most definitely try and use it to my advantage and maybe even tie in my PS with that in some way. Just be honest on ERAS about what you really did at the job.

Also, see this for discussion of a similar question on a different forum:
