Hey! I am applying to path for 07 and have a few questions ( not neccessarily path related per se) about my CV. Firstly, I have a poster publication to cite. The abstract was in the conference proceedings. It may seem like a basic question but I cannot seem to find how to cite an abstract in conference proceedings. how do you do this? and then should I have the abstract cited and then say presented as a poster in xyz conference or what?
Also, would it be prudent to highlight path related activities like pathology rotation, honors grade, may 2010, high pass in pathology course, may 2006?
Thanks for your help!

Remember to mention personal stuff like your religious preference, political affliation and your stand on current issues, it shows you have depth of character and PDs always enjoy a good banter with applicants who have well formed ideas about the world. Placing such affliations as NOW, Amnesty International, Socialist Workers of the World and Earth First prominently in your CV and your PS may seem trivial, but it's these little things that can separate the choice medical students from the background chaff.

I would only recommend that one lists published undergrad work. I.e. not unpublished thesis, etc.

Agreed...although, I think it's OK to mention the undergrad thesis...probably won't carry all that much weight though. Doesn't hurt to put a one-liner in the CV about unpublished undergrad thesis though.
