    Do they care about Undergrad research experiences or volunteering - or should we only include medical school activities. I worked for 2 years at a company before med school, so I included that, but not sure if I should list my research activities in undergrad.
    Thanks.

    1. Attending Physician
      If you got a pub out of it, then definitely list it.

      Otherwise, if you think it's relevant to your future career as a physician AND you're ready to talk about the work, including what's happened to that project since you left that lab (I got asked this one), then yes, list it.

      If it was just something you did to buff your med school app, then don't bother.
