According to US Best News, volunteering has become a bigger factor than most think for medical schools when it comes to admissions. “Doing volunteer work in a health care setting shows a student has tried to understand what it’s like to have a career in medicine before committing to medical school.” Therefore, as the PPMA, we strive to get our students involved in the community around us.
You may see below some of the clinics that are in the Philadelphia area that are looking for volunteers. The board has contacted the volunteer coordinators for these organizations and are familiar with our organization.
Keep in mind that there are applications for most of the volunteer programs, so the earlier you start looking into them the better!
