well here is my situation. I might have to re-apply this spring if I dont get in this year. My emt-b course wouldn't start until June anyways....so would it help me to get it. Would I put on my application I am planning on getting my emt-b or in the process of. Because the applications are avialbe in May..correct? I want to get ti for experience...but i can also go volunteer at a clinic during those hours and work and get to know patients as well. any thoughts? thanks
I think you'll learn more if you become an EMT. I was both an EMT in college as well as an orderly in the ED. Nothing can compare to the hands on learning (as well as didactics) that you'll get. Also, it will look better on your application to residency if you were an EMT compared to an orderly or patietn care tech.
