What I did was went on the AOA website and found some DO's in my area than just picked up the phone and made some calls. I asked if I could shadow and or if there was any way to meet with them. Most DO's know about the requirement for admission so they are good about shadowing. As far as clinical experience, try getting a job as a phlebotomist or a CNA. Both are fairly easy to get with little or no experience and if you are near a city, you can work per diem and still go to school. I am waiting to hear back on a clinical lab assistant position where I will be doing phlebotomy and lab work. Seems like it would be good for med school. Good luck and make a few phone calls. Thats your best bet.mill_z said:What's the best way to get involved with shadowing, clinical experience, or research? Do I just go up and ask, send a resume, call them or what?
