Maybe I have SDN syndrome, but I was thinking "is it Really that Important?"jeeze, it's been a while.. but I know I did habitat for humanity a few weekends, for a couple years ina row.
Honestly, I really didn't have much non-clin volunteering, almost all my ECs were involving EMT work, doctor shadowing, and my neuroscience lab research/thesis.
I'm pretty sure it's important to have at least ONE non-clin volunteering gig, and to have some activities that are non-clin related. Adcom committees want to make sure you're "not a robot" (my interviewer's words...this is DO school though).Maybe I have SDN syndrome, but I was thinking "is it Really that Important?"
habitat sounds cool, did you need any training, or can you sum up what you did, that would be awesome!
If you don't have a car in Lisle, you might be limited in what you can get involved in. For a regular (weekly) volunteer gig, consider walking across the street and doing some tutoring at the HS. Doing something for 2-4 hours per week would be fine.I spoke to my Pre-Med advisior today. and she said to get some Non-clinical Volunteering under my belt. So I wanted to know what would be a ideal # of hours volunteering.
I wouldn't really think so. It's still pretty medical-related. I think of non-clinical volunteering as more of something that is completely unrelated to medicine. Anatomy is pretty important in medicine.Hey I was wondering If I became a T.A. for Anatomy for like 3-4 semesters (1 sem would be for credit, and the rest would be volunteering) would that count as Non-Clinical?
