Does research count as clinical experience?

What is considered clinical volunteering?

Clinical volunteering is dealing with sick and injured people and their families in a clinical setting, not out on the street or under a highway overpass. Not all volunteering needs to be in a hospital.

What is non clinical volunteering?

Non-clinical volunteering happens outside of the healthcare setting – and they may have nothing to do with medicine at all. Feel free to follow your passions: if you love animals, go volunteer at a local animal shelter. If teaching is your passion, hold free tutoring sessions.

Is hospice volunteering considered clinical experience?

Yep, absolutely, as long as you’re working with them, not in a back office somewhere. Yes! I’ve done both nursing home and hospice volunteering. After that you’re free to apply to one of the hospice programs in the area and that’s a fairly short process, but requires an interview.

How many hours of shadowing do you need?

Ryan recommends shooting for around 40 or 50 hours of shadowing, and then more clinical experience. That’s just a rough estimate, though. Some schools actually state a requirement on their website. Of those, some say 100 hours, while others are around 12-24 hours.
