Since I saw your sports-med tagline, a suggestion is to take a summer job working as a physical therapist aide. It would expose you to the evaluative process PT's use, the impact impairments have on patients and what is most important to them, and current sports-med surgical procedure. Depending on the facility, there may be a very close physical proximity with the surgical team. I've seen many students use this technique effectively. The hours worked may also count as job shadowing hours that are required by some colleges to consider your application to a program.
