Summer between Freshman Year and Sophomore Year
Hello College Confidential Members!
I am a rising sophomore at Boston University who is on the pre-med track. Since my freshman year is over, it is time to think about activities to do in the summer.
Here are a few things that I am doing over the summer:
-Volunteer at a local EMS
-Volunteer at a local hospital
-Shadow student for an MD at a cardiology office
-Shadow student for a PA in the ER
-Sports writer (NBA) for a semi-popular sports website
What types of activities do you all recommend I should do over the summer? Am I gaining enough clinical experience or should I pursue more medical related activities?
Ultimately, my goal is to go to medical school or PA school so any advice for finding activities that relate to both goals would be appreciated.
