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.
I think starting a club like HOSA would be a great idea. They're well established and have national, state, and regional levels where you can compete in different competitions like @Solemn said. However, I did find some basic ideas for what you could do if you decide to create the Future Doctors of America club (unless you plan on ONLY having future doctors in your club, it might make sense to change the name a bit to make it clear any future health professional is welcome).
So if you decide to do FDA you could: discuss nearby hospital volunteer opportunities, discuss shadowing opportunities, discuss topics related to healthcare, discuss topics related to healthcare and higher education (BS/MD programs, med school, PA programs, EMT programs. etc). I think if you could bring in guest speakers to teach you specific tops that would be cool. I saw somewhere online where students in a club like this got to learn various types of sutures and could practice performing medical examinations (basic ear, eye, respiratory, neurological, etc exams). If you're able to start a club and use some of those ideas I think it would look great on your application!
I'm not sure what FDA is but I am part of Health Occupations Students of America! www.hosa.org
You can start a chapter at your school (some start blood drive committees too), there are regional, state, and international competiton events, scholarships, community service, and they even offer internships!
