SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm about to put in applications for my first hospital volunteering experience. I have two choices, each with its own application: 1. Strong Memorial Hospital, the main teaching hosp. of the Univ. of Rochester med school 2. Highland Hospital, a smaller "community" hospital but still under the umbrella of the university medical group From what I've read on the forum so far, hospital volunteering can be a deeply mixed bag. My instinct is to go for the smaller institution, with the hope that they'll have fewer volunteers and I'll wind up getting to do more than just clerk the gift shop. However, will adcoms wonder why I didn't take the opportunity to put my time in at the region's major med center? Anything else I ought to consider? Thx for any/all input!
