What are some good places to start or programs that I can do if I want a career in medicine, but I'm still in high school?
I'm 15 and want to get ahead in my volunteering and experiences. But my school doesn't have that many programs and I have no connections to any nurses or people experienced in that field. All the programs I've seen are limited or expensive, so what should I do?
Best of luck.
Volunteers greet visitors, run groups, provide support to patients, wash and change linens, clean rooms, restock supplies and help ensure that the hospital is running cleanly and smoothly so that those providing medical care can focus on the patient's physical health and continued well-being.
A lot of people have already said my usual recommendations: look for volunteering opportunities at local hospitals, clinics, hospice centers, retirement homes, rehabilitation centers, etc. A lot of health associations, hospitals, or charities for medical research also host various events throughout the year, and volunteering at those events can also be a great way to be involved. There are a lot of annual fundraisers, too. Look for any major hospital systems in your area, and I can guarantee you they probably have a volunteer program and possibly even a shadowing program for teenagers in high school.
Even if you can't find medical-related volunteer opportunities, any volunteering in your community is better than no volunteering at all. I didn't do any medicine or health volunteering in HS, and I still got into medical school. Ultimately what they're looking for are people who are compassionate, hard-working, and community-oriented. So help in whatever way is most accessible to you.
Additionally, If you want to improve your medical education, I recommend looking into CPR and First Aid classes. See if your school system has AP or dual enrollment credit opportunities. Getting college credit in math and science is a great way to boost your academic progress.
Hope this helps!
