They are just trying to get a sense of how much time you have spent doing research during your premed years. If you go to the lab and work for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 1 year (2 x 5 x 52 = 510 hours)Hello, sorry if this is the wrong forum, kinda new here still.
I was wondering if anyone can tell me how research hours are listed on a medical application? I do 1 - 3 credit hours of research at my school's Microbio lab which actually equates to 8 hours - 16 hours per week in the lab. I don't know why it's done like that, just is.
I appreciate any answers on this, thank you!
Don't overcomplicate this. I would go by how much you ACTUALLY do. Not what your "credit hours" are.
