Scribe! Although this may sound like a "typical activity," this is one of the top clinical experience a pre-medical student can choose. Not only to you work directly with physicians, but you go into every room, and witness the physician-teaching style that may inspire you to be a physician. This is your chance to show medical schools that you understand the rigors of what it takes to be a physician and why it inspires you to continue on this path. Yes, the above mentioned are great ways to get your feet wet in a clinical setting, but from my experience, scribing puts you in direct contact with physicians, and thus they can become your mentor and write you your letters of recommendation.
