What are some good extracurricular activities for a pre-med student?

Hey all! I'm a junior who wants to go into medicine and I'm looking for some extracurricular activities that can help me stand out in the college admissions process. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's great that you're thinking about extracurricular activities to enhance your pre-med profile. My child went through a similar process, so I can share some ideas based on their experience. First, try volunteering at a local hospital or clinic. This will give you an opportunity to gain hands-on experience and show your dedication to medicine. Another option is to join a health-related club at your school, like HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) or a pre-med club. These clubs often provide resources and guidance for aspiring medical professionals. Research is also an excellent way to show your interest in medicine. Reach out to local universities or research institutions to see if they have any openings for high school students. Lastly, consider shadowing a doctor or medical professional in your community. This will help you gain a better understanding of what a career in medicine is like and demonstrate your commitment to the field. Good luck with your college admissions journey!
