Medical School Admissions: AMCAS Work/Activities

Did you know the AMCAS Work/Activities section is more than just a resume?

The Work/Activities section requires you to categorize your experiences by the following categories:

Paid Employment— Not Military
Paid Employment—Military
Community Service/Volunteer—Not Medical/Clinical
Community Service/Volunteer—Medical/Clinical
Conferences Attended
Leadership—Not Listed ElsewhereOther

This allows you to include many experiences not listed on a normal resume. Some examples:

Guitarist in a band that created an album
Attended a toxicology conference in Berlin
Won a creative writing contest in college
Completed an Ironman triathlon
