I have been trying to decide how I should spend my summer for a while now, but just recently found SDN. I am a Junior and will be applying next year. I have logged around 1000 hours of lab time and have done posters/presentations, as well as being selected for a highly competitive fellowship. Additionally, I plan on being published twice in a month or so. However, I feel like my "clinical experiences" are a bit low. I spent around 85 hours in a more hands-on experience (transporting patients, talking to them, occasionally sneaking a peak at a procedure) in a hospital, around 20 more volunteering with the children there, and helped with the blood drives in the area). **The question is.....should I apply for the fellowship again which takes 11 weeks of the summer and shadow doctors in those other 5 weeks to really make my research stand out or cut back on work and focus mostly on clinical experiences to help level out my resume....sorry its long, i felt more detail would help.
