Question Medical School Award section on ERAS

Quick question please...

During my years as medical student, my school selected me to observe for one month in the USA.

Should I add that as 'Experience' os under 'Medical school awards'

Thanks...
Abdullah

Any work you have done that was "unpaid" should not go under work experience, it should go under "volunteer".

You can also mention it as a Medical School Award, if it was an Award.

sorry Sabio. Any clinical exprience, from clinical education in medical school or electives done, should go under work. Any extra curricular activity or volunteering on school stuff should go under school. ERAS has chnaged its requirment from this year. I talked to 3 different people on this matter.

Dear Doctor

Include Clinical and Teaching experience as work experiences, include all unpaid extra-curricular activities and committees you have served on as volunteer experiences. Yes, this means the clinical rotations your husband has done during medical school which wore in the United States of America should go under work.

This is the email answer we got, we also called 3 times to find out for sure.
