    Quick question. I'm currently interning at a Nevada hospital dedicated to teaching students how the setting is like. Could I possibly put this into my dental aps and play it off as "I want my DDS in order to work in the hospital setting as a gen. dent or oral surgeon?" Or will dent reviewers look at it as a sign of indecisiveness between medicine/dentistry? (which I know is not good).

    Unless you have hundreds of other hours in other areas, put it for sure.

    I was in a year long program once that had me shadowing a different rotation in a hospital every 2 weeks, 4 hours a day, every other day. I got to see a lot of different areas of medicine from OR to ER, cardiac, endoscopy, etc. It helped me come to the conclusion that I wanted to do dentistry instead of medicine. I would definitely put it in the application.
