The numbers I have seen are averaging ~100 volunteer hours, about 10-15 hours per month for several months.I know volunteering hours in clinical and nonclinical settings are important, but roughly how many hours are expected by the time you apply for med school.
However, it’s not just about number of hours. If you have meaningful volunteering where you can have a passionate conversation with your interviewer, this is much more beneficial than someone who does 8000 hours but really didn’t get anything out of the experience and can’t talk about it.
Quality > quantity.
