Studying medicine Medical student Patient and public Last updated: As well as giving you a taste of medicine to ensure it is a career that you want, work experience also aims to give you an understanding of the emotional and physical demands that make up being a medical professional. Some hospital departments will not allow shadowing by anyone under 18 and most GP practices specify a minimum age of 16 for patient observations. Places often fill up so organise your placement as soon as possible and some applications are often only open for a few weeks a year.
You should, however, update your resume for your personal use. You should record only experiences obtained during college and should only list each experience in one category. Letters of evaluation are traditional recommendation letters written by a person qualified to recommend a person to dental school.
Once a reference is completed on the ADEA AADSAS application, it cannot be removed or replaced, so it is important to define which evaluations each dental school has requested before submitting requests to your evaluators.
Please note that references from family members are generally frowned upon by admissions offices. Once evaluators are selected, be certain to inform them of the process and that they will be filling out the reference electronically.
Obtain their preferred email address and make sure they are monitoring their email inbox for the request email. Requesting Evaluations Applicants can submit up to four letters of evaluations. Each letter should be written by one person. A committee letter can either be one letter that is collaboratively written by a group of people or a collection of letters submitted on behalf of an institution or office.
In the application, the applicant must indicate these items for each letter: Indicate which date the evaluation needs to be submitted based on the earliest dental school deadline date; the deadline is not imposed by ADEA AADSAS and evaluators can still submit after the date. Write a message only the evaluator will see it to assist the evaluator.
For each evaluation, the applicant must select whether or not to waive their access to the evaluation. The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of FERPA provides applicants the right to access letters of evaluation written after January 1,unless they choose to waive their right of inspection and review.
Evaluator Instructions When an applicant saves an evaluation request, the evaluator will receive an email request to complete the evaluation. The email will include a link to an online portal where the evaluator can upload a letter up to 5 MB.
It is recommended that the letter be on letterhead and include a signature. While ADEA AADSAS does not collect a resume, applicants are encouraged to use the experience section to provide detailed information about academic enrichment, dental shadowing, employment, activities, research and volunteer positions.
The definitions for these categories are as follows: Programs sponsored by colleges, universities or other not—for—profit organizations e. Time spent officially following and observing a health care professional at work, preferably a dentist.
When listing a dental experience, please specify the type of dentist you shadowed in the description text box e. Paid work done outside of the dental care field; for example, a non-dental healthcare experience, retail or restaurant job.

Volunteer work done outside of the health care field; for example, working for Habitat for Humanity, tutoring students, participating in or working for a fundraiser walk or blood drive, etc.
For each experience listed, applicants should include the name and address of the organization, supervisor, dates associated with the experience, title held by the applicant, average weekly hours, a description of key responsibilities, and a release for the dental schools if they chose to contact the organization.
Applicants should only record experiences obtained during college and should limit their entries to the top six experiences in each category.

When adding achievements, applicants will be asked to detail the name of the presenting organization, issue date and a brief description.
