Health professions programs look for applicants who demonstrate a sustained commitment to serving and helping others, both in healthcare settings and in your community.

Volunteering in hospitals, clinics, and other health care settings gives you a chance to work with patients and health care teams. Volunteering outside of health care settings gives you a chance to serve your community in other ways that are meaningful to you. For example, you might be interested in music, enjoy working with older people, or have an interest in policy issues. Get involved in what interests you — in clinical settings and otherwise — so your experiences tell a cohesive story about who you are!
