SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey all A few classmates of mine been having disagreements when it comes to listing non-work/research/volunteer experiences in ERAS. Where would you categorize leadership positions (AMA national council positions, leadership in school organizations, etc). Technically, these are not work in the traditional sense. I don't fully consider them volunteer experiences as well (I think more of the line of free clinics, etc). Certainly they are not research. How and where would you categorize them? Put them in the Misc. section? There are only 510 characters allowed in that section and it would be impossible to mention various leadership positions and explain them in 510 characters. Along the same lines, where would you list awards and grants? Same problem, if you have a several awards, they won't fit (along with explanations) in the 510 character Misc. section. Would you put them under experiences? Plus, if they are significant, putting them in the Misc. section without explanation seems like you are dismissing them to a certain extent. Any help?
