How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
One way to go is to start/join a club about medicine. If your school already has a club, get very involved and maybe even become an officer or something like that. If your school doesn't have one, you should make one!
You can also go on the websites of hospitals and clinics near you, and check if they have a volunteer page where they might post volunteer opportunities to either help out with patients or even shadow a doctor.
Another idea is to start your own webpage or podcast on medicine and health care. (you can make it educational, or more lighthearted and fro entertainment etc.) This will allow you to show colleges something "tangible" that demonstrates your interest int the field.
