Step 1 - List Patient Care Experiences
Step 2 - Compare Experiences to AAMC and/or ADEA Guidelines (see Resources). Any concerns? Yes or No?
- If Yes, Proceed to Step 3. If No, Stop here. You can include in your application(s).
Step 3 - Evaluate Number of Concerns and How Severe They Are?
- Think about strength of your application with and without these particular experiences
- Determine your comfort level in discussing experiences you participated in beyond your training/licensure.
- Are there other ways admission committees could learn about this trip/experiences anyways? (i.e., from letter writers? from other students? from affiliation with organizations?)
Step 4 - Make Decision to Include Experiences in Your Application(s)
- Make sure you…
- Highlight positive experiences
- Realize door is now open to any and all questions
- Are always honest
- Realize you may end up acknowledging participation in activities beyond your training/licensure
- Be prepared to explain what have learn about…
- Potential harm to patients
- Potential harm to yourself
- Ethical lessons learned
- Have you encouraged others to avoid these Situations?
