Medical School Admissions: AMCAS Work/Activities

As I mentioned in the previous post, the AMCAS Work/Activities section is more than a resume. Like a resume, it requires you to include the dates, location, and description of activities. But you will also need specifics on the average hours per week you spent on the activity and the name, title, phone number, and e-mail of a contact who can vouch that you did the activity. This contact can be a professor, coach, community service advisor, principal investigator, etc. It should not be a member of your family.

Want to discuss what activities to include on your AMCAS? Email or call 415.939.5251 for personal AMCAS expert advice from a Harvard/Stanford MD and medical school admissions expert.
