I just graduated this past spring and am figuring out how to boost ECs during my gap year(s). During undergrad, I worked as a clinical research assistant (continuing this currently). I've performed blood draws on study subjects (research setting) and on patients in unit (hospital setting). I also administered psychiatric assessments on people during study visits. Recently, I spoke with a medical school dean of admissions for insight and was pushed to pursue medical scribing instead. I'm a little discouraged because I'm just not sure how this role has to more to offer when I've been interacting with physicians, nurses, patients/study participants, and even medical students as a research assistant. It just feels like I should be checking off boxes for my resume . . . I've also shadowed physicians and volunteered (clinical and non-clinical) during undergrad. I guess I'm just confused on what actually counts as "clinical experience"?
