    Before I switched to pre-med I had planned to go to physical therapy school and would like to if my observation hours ( over 300) there would count? Also I'm a MDA Camp Counselor that requires me to be the primary caregiver of a child with a neurodegenerative disease for a week, would this count as well?

    By clinical observation hours i assume you mean shadowing.
    The PT shadowing would not count because its just not medicine.
    And i dont think the other thing would either.
    Just go shadow a doc or two for a day or two. Its quick, and youll rack up hours quick :)

    What do you mean by "would count?" If you are talking about meeting a requirement for a specific school, then probably not.

    However, I would definitely list of these ECs on your applications; especially the second one.

    How do you find Physical Therapists to shadow? I don't know any physical therapists at the moment, but that is my biggest draw back in applying for the DPT program.
