Question Observership in ERAS application

I have worked with two physicians as an observer, but they let me interview patients, examine them and then I present cases to my supervising physician. I also occasionally write notes under their name. My question is what should I write under description of my observerships? Can I mention everything I did with "under supervision" at the end of the sentence?

My advice just put under the supervision of your attending, since we are not licensed yet to be in direct contact with the patient without supervision. Beside that the PD may consider ur attitude during observership unethical & may give negative impression on ur application.
