For activities in the AMCAS app, in what category does shadowing belong? Would it be “Community Service/Volunteer - Medical/Clinical” or perhaps “Extracurricular/Hobbies/ Avocations?” Neither seems to quite fit.
For the sake of completeness - and in case anyone’s interested in the app - this is what AMCAS provides:
From the drop-down list, select the Experience Type that best represents the experience you wish to include. Because these are arbitrary categories, it is up to the applicant to decide which experience type best suits each particular experience.
Paid Employment - Military
Community Service/Volunteer - not Medical/Clinical
Community Service/Volunteer - Medical/Clinical
Leadership - not Listed Elsewhere
