Gaining experience during your undergraduate career serves two important purposes. It allows you to explore the health care sector to determine if it is a good career path for you, and it enhances your credentials for applying to a professional program. Many programs require that you complete a minimum number of volunteering (healthcare and non-healthcare related), clinical healthcare experience and/or shadowing hours to be considered for admission.  Consult your pre-professional health advisor for more information about gaining the most ideal experience based on your interests and your healthcare field of interest.
