Default 2 ongoing experiences?

I did research work in a hospital for 3 months, then took a 3 month pause to give my ck. now I am doing an externship in this other hospital which will be a 4 week rotation.
After I finish my externship, I plan to continue my research volunteer work.
Now for both of these,in my eras application, should I leave the End Date blank?? is it not gona look odd?
or should I put an end date for my externship? it will end next month. but currently the experience is ongoing.
also my LOR for research exp states that I did volunteer work from so and so month. with start and end dates!
aghh . so confusing

It's only hard/confusing because you are making it hard/confusing.
For research, it lasted 3 months initially, so put the 3 mths down. (For example June-Aug)
For the externship , its just a month, so put start Sep, end Oct. whatever it is.
Then create another one again for research, put start Oct (or whatever month) and leave end blank.

So 3 separate entries, its really not that difficult.
