    For those of you who have filled out or are working on the OHSU secondary, what did you do for the EMPLOYMENT/ACTIVITIES HISTORY section? It says to give a brief description. Does this mean to just list what you did, i.e.: Hospital volunteer, Lab technician, Teaching Assistant, etc. Or does it mean to write a mini-essay on each entry?

    Thanks!

    i just did mine in list form because they said they wanted it to look similar to how they listed it. i gave a very very very brief description. not even a complete sentence just something like:

    Lab assistant-helped........., assisted with.......
    ER volunteer-watched....., helped......., explained.......

    I kept it very brief because they didn't sound like they wanted full paragraphs or anything.

    Yeah, that sounds good. If nothing else, there will be two of us that do it that way. Thanks.

    What are the secondary questions for OHSU? I have not been home to get my real mail.

    I don't believe that anyone has posted them yet.

    Thanks for any help that anyone can offer!

    What values and personal attributes gained from your life experiences have best prepared you to enter the profession of medicine? (do not exceed one page).

    Not an essay: Give us a chronological account of your major activities and employment, including volunteer and summer activities, for the five years immediately preceding your proposed entry to medical school. (do not exceed one page).

    I just did some brainstorming about medical & non-medical experiences that have shaped who I am and described those situations.
