Gaining experience in healthcare settings is vital to understanding the experience of patients and healthcare providers. Students should aim to obtain a minimum of 2 years of quality, varied, and sustained healthcare experiences prior to applying to professional school.
This is a time of uncertainty and disruption for everyone, and professional schools are well aware of the implications the current pandemic will have on pre-health students. They will not hold this time against you as it is outside of your control. Try not to stress about the “lost time” shadowing/volunteering in physical capacities and focus on the ways you can be an active, helpful member of your home community.
