What clinical experiences have shaped your interest in medicine?
Hi friends! I'm new here, and I was hoping to get some feedback on my volunteer experiences. During my undergrad, I was heavily involved with Habitat for Humanity and Lion's Club. Right now, I'm in a gap year. I am working as a unpaid intern (aka volunteering) with a charity organization for my local hospital 5hrs/week. I help out with fundraisers that raise a lot of money for the hospital's causes, such as providing free mammograms to women in our community, transportation for people who need medical care, hospice care, etc..
Would you say this is non-clinical as well? I am indirectly involved in providing medical care to these individuals.
That being said, I would love to hear what clinical experience have reconfirmed your interest in medicine.
I am just getting my feet wet with the Remote Area Medical Clinic in my community, which provides medical/vision/dental services to the uninsured/underinsured people in my area. It should be an awesome turnout next month!!
