I'm working as a PCA (personal care attendant) for two patients: one with several mental disorders, and another with a serious physical disorder. Is this enough "clinical experience" for med schools? (I have previously done research within a hospital setting, but with no patient contact). Anyway, I thought being a PCA would give me much more direct, personal experience with the patient than say, volunteering at a hospital. That shoud be the point, right? However, as a PCA, I am only working with a few (right now, two) patients at a time, whereas in a hospital setting, I suppose I would come into contact with a lot more, albeit the interaction with each would be severely limited. Thoughts?
