Hello! I’m a current Junior in high school, and I only recently found out about BSMD programs. I never thought medical related volunteer experiences were important during my freshman year, but COVID prevented any medical-related experiences for this past summer. I know colleges look specifically for long term and commitment in their applicants, but is there anything I can take part in specifically that allows me to get exposure in the field, given these difficult times?
Adcomms understand the impact that Covid has had on students trying to gain medical exposure and are loosening the standards for this.
However, adcomms still expect non-medical community service with the less fortunate from applicants. I would focus your volunteer efforts there.
