So a little confused. I assume I need a medical school resume to submit with my application, but I really haven't heard much about it. I mean, I have a rough draft of one, but other than that, I just haven't inquired much about it. If I do need a resume, what sort of things need to be included? How long should it be? Any sample resumes you could link to?

Thanks everyone.

You don't need a resume with the application. You will need a CV for some schools when you are completing their secondary application, but not for the primary.

I was actually surprised when I found that there aren't (to my knowledge) even a place to upload your resume to AACOMAS or AMCAS. They expect you to do the "Experiences" section thoroughly and this in effect is your resume.

You assume wrong. Please have mercy on us and don't give us yet one more thing to read that we don't have to? Your app is your resume.

I would have a resume/CV ready. It made it easier for me to input stuff into my primary application. Plus, if you haven't already contacted letter writers, they often ask for that.
