Medical Student (Accepted)
I work as a standardized patient at a nearby medical school's simulation center. My boss really needed more people to volunteer for rectal and pelvic exams and I didn't want to say no since I am really hoping for an acceptance at that school. I ended up agreeing to do it... but only with the students from other schools and programs. How awkward would that be to start school there and bump into one of my examiners in the library?? Anyway, now I am being asked on my supplemental about updated experience. I don't have many other updates so should I mention this or avoid it completely?? I'm not sure how I would handle those interview questions. Honestly, I am not sure how my interviewers would handle the questions either!

Edit: forgot to mention that the role has a separate title of teaching associate.

Man, I've heard of eating a poop hotdog to get into medical school, but being turned into a sock puppet to get in? OP is really breaking new ground here.
I think he/she is setting a new standard. If you don't have "volunteer for rectal and pelvic exams" on your resume in a couple year, you will not be competitive.

Nah dude, this'll turn into the EMT thing. It will be considered glorified fisting as an EC, now that's something anyone can do (not everyone can drive!). What would really impress me is being a practice dummy for inserting catheters

Sometimes SDN makes me question my sanity, and then it delivers solid internet gold. Every. Time.

Not even if I am a Teaching ASSociate??
I totally missed that in the original post, as I suspect most others did. Well done.

No worries.... No one will remember your face. Just keep your pants on in the library.
