Medical Student
I'm planning on applying for a research project this summer at my med school, and I have to send a resume out to the PI's of projects I'm interested in. But I haven't changed my resume since...hmmm...well, the AMCAS, I guess...definitely not since med school started.

So does anyone know what kinds of things you would add to a resume after starting med school? Student group participation, etc? Any ideas on how or if to change the format? (I'm not so good at just "winging it" for these kinds of things!) :p Thanks!

As a medical student you are supposed to have a CV, not a resume. The main difference is that a CV only has stuff related to science and the like on it. Hope that helps.

I still have both a CV and a resume. As was said the CV is limited to academic material and the resume incorporates community activities etc. For internal uses (e.g. letters of rec, med school profiles) I use the resume as it gives a more complete picture of what I am doing. For outside uses (applications etc) I use the CV.

Things you should add: teaching experiences, lectures/talks you have given, presentations you have given at meetings, posters/papers, professional society memberships, research experience.

I am sure there are some more, but this is all I can think of off the top of my head.
