i am a type one diabetic and my career goal is to be an endocrinologist. last week i was hooked up with a research job in finding a cure for diabetes. needless to say i was thrilled...the only reason im apprehensive about taking it is that most of my EC's in the field of diabetes(i plan to shadow my endo this summer). i plan to do other things like volunteer at a nursing home and help kids learn to read. is this acceptable or will med-schools want a more "well rounded individual" -any thoughts?
