Hi! I will be a sophmore in college this fall and I am already considering my options for next summer. I have very little "clinical volunteering" so far in college (although I did do over 400 hrs in high school, I'm not sure if I can put it on my application). My college is in a small town and the only clinical volunteering opportunities are at a nursing home and cleaning/greeting/doing paperwork at the local hospital. I am 99.999% sure I want to be a pediatrician, maybe a pediatric psychiatrist, so instead I have been volunteering at a preschool and at an afterschool program for low income kids. This summer I am completing an internship in the neonatology unit of a large hospital in Mexico (does abroad experience count as clinical?) and solidifying my Spanish fluency. This coming summer I am considering returning to my large home city to volunteer at the same Children's hospital I volunteered at in High School and to shadow. However, I am also considering being an overnight camp counselor for children with social skills deficits (Autism, ADHD etc). Honestly I feel I would be more challenged by and learn more from the camp counselor job, however, everyone here keeps talking about the necessity of clinical volunteering and I feel as if I do not/will not have enough. All advice is appreciated!
