Do the scribe job and NOT the research job. Scribe gets you money, shadowing, and clinical hours.I recently decided that I want to go to med school so I started to volunteer at the hospital and hospice. So for now my plan is apply to post bacc or SMP for 2021-2022 cycle and I want to apply to med school for 2022-23 cycle. So I'm assuming that I will be in post-bacc or SMP in August/September of 2021. So before that I'm trying to get a job.
I do not have much clinical experience obviously so I applied to a scribe job at Urgent care. It doesn't really seem like I will get a lot of experience from there since the interviewer told me that tbh we're mostly doing covid testing stuff.
I got another job offer as a clinical research associate for a big biotech company. They didn't describe very well on what I will be doing but I'm assuming that it will be beginner clinical research job involving clinical trials with patient interactions. This pays couple dollars more than the scribe job.
I really don't care about the money I will be earning but I wasn't sure what will be better experience for me.
