Hello SDNers, I just graduated from college, and I'm looking for ways to improve my ECs before reapplying to medical school (no interviews the first time). I'm already retaking my MCAT, so I'm not worried about that too much. There's really no way to improve my GPA (3.24) so I'm banking on clinical experience. I'm already volunteering on the patient floor at one hospital and in the emergency department at another hospital. I have the opportunity to take either an 8-week CNA course or a 16-week Medical Assistant course. Both are through the local adult school, so they're cheap. In CA, because of malpractice insurance, doctors don't like to give MAs on the job training, so I'm hoping that either of these courses would get me some more realistic patient contact than what I'm doing right now. What do you guys think? Which one should I go for? Either? Neither? Thanks guys!
