Just selected by state health department to be a contact tracer and start making calls today. Med school application has already been submitted and verified, obviously without this activity included. Should contact tracing be used as an update to application after amassing x number of hours, or should it be included in the "anything else to add that's not on your application" question for secondaries?
I would put it in your secondaries so they can use it to make interview decisions. It's a wonderful experience that gets you into public health, and I would be interested in talking to you about it if I were interviewing you.
