Penn Medicine - Extracurricular activities

Everything you need to know about the required extracurricular activities section.

You'll be required to use this section to tell us about THREE of your extracurricular activities.

Yes, we definitely only want three! So, we'd encourage you to think about them all, and choose those that you feel will be the most relevant to the admissions committee.

For each activity, you'll be required to provide the following information:

  • Name of the activity
  • Whether it is an in school activity or out of school activity
  • Number of hours per week (or month or year)
  • A description of your responsibilities and the impact of your participation on the population(s) served by this activity. (This should not exceed 1 - 2 paragraphs.)
