Many secondary applications ask you to highlight one particular experience listed on the AMCAS. They often want to hear about clinical exposure. Examples of most important activity questions include:
1. From among the activities and experiences listed in your AMCAS application, please select one activity or experience that has most impacted your decision to undertake a career in health care. Please describe your role in the activity/experience and how this activity helped you make the decision to apply to medical school.
2. What has been your most important exposure to clinical medicine?
3. Briefly describe your most rewarding experience or some achievement of which you are particularly proud.
Though it may feel repetitive, you will often be describing activities already listed in the application. This is a chance to explain these activities more fully and highlight those most important to you. Focus on experiences that show dedication, leadership, or unique skills.
