What can be considered as a volunteer service?
Hello, I am a bit concerned about my volunteering hours. So far, I have 60 hours of volunteer hours from health care trip in Nicaragua and I only have 20 hours in campus organization volunteer. I was wondering if doing a personal fundraiser project for a patient could be counted as volunteer hours. I have been doing this one fundraiser project for my friend who was born with cleft palate in vietnam (I decided to help her because I was also born with cleft palate and lip). She is from a very...

MSW vs OT vs Mental health nursing
Are OTs and mental health nurses gaining favour as providers of clinical mental health care among employers/insurers, over the others? Job ads suggest this is true. I know that historically, there's been fierce competition in the broader mental health arena (psychologists wanting prescribing rights; MSWs wanting assessment responsibilities; OTs seeking a masters-level minimum for registration; insurers wanting whoever's cheapest and legal). Have read that while social workers enjoy a... MSW vs OT vs Mental health nursing (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Non-Traditional Student Advice - Prerequisites
Hi everyone! 26 year old nontraditional student here. Graduated from a 4 year university back in 2013 with a double major in Economics and International Business. After graduating I played professional soccer for a couple years. Unfortunately that got cut short due to injuries. I now own my own business, a restaurant, and am doing well. Over the last year, especially due to my soccer related injuries, I've really developed an interest for the health care world. After taking Anatomy & Phys 1...

Pre-Dental Job Recommendations
Hi, I am currently a Senior in Highschool and am interested in the field of Dentistry. I realize that Dental school is far away for me but I like to plan ahead. I understand that shadowing dentists and volunteer hours have a strong affect on an application to dental school. However, does having a certain job mean anything on an application for dental school? I have worked for Aurora Health Care (A large health care provider in Wisconsin) as a food service assistant for a year and a half. Is...

Has anyone here left pharmacy school (or other professional school) for med school?
I've poked around in the forums a bit, but haven't found any recent threads on this topic so I thought I'd make a post! I'm currently in my first year of pharmacy school and I'm having serious doubts about whether or not I want to a pharmacist. I thought I wanted to be a pharmacist for years (worked for 2 years as a tech), but the more time I spend in pharmacy school, the more my views have changed on what sort of role I want as a health care provider. It's not that I don't like pharmacy. I... Has anyone here left pharmacy school (or other professional school) for med school? (Source: S...

What is the SDN opinion on Single Payer Health Care?
This is something I always wondered about. And for many pre-meds, it could be an interview question. Bernie Sanders’ single payer plan would have costed $ 1.38 trillion a year, but saved 6 trillion over the next decade. We would have a 6.2% payroll tax on everyone, 2.2% health care premium increase/income tax on workers, tax on capital gains tax on people making over 250k, and eliminated deductions for the wealthy, and raised the estate tax in order to pay for it. According to Professor... What is the SDN opinion on Single Payer Health Care? (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Any good literature to understand the American health care system?
Hello guys, I was wondering if anyone knew of any good literature that could give a reader an understanding of the American healthcare system? Perhaps literature that gives an overview, problems with the system, the future of the system, etc. I have searched the forums and noticed that most of the threads were started in the early 2000's and was hoping someone could provide more recent material. Thank you all! (Source: Student Doctor Network)

Volunteer at a nursing home or a refugee center
Hi, So my University offers these programs over winter break where I can volunteer at an organization over winter break for 40 hours. My two choices are either a nursing home or a refugee crisis center. The nursing home definitely is more health care oriented, but its just going to be like Haven volunteering here. On the other hand, although the refugee situation is not related to health care, it seems more unique and something more unique to bring up in an interview. Both are equally...

Long Winded Road to Medicine
Hi, guys! I'm currently aspiring to get into a medical school, but not exactly on the road going there yet. My current situation dictates that I work in another health care field first, then continue to improve my GPA (foreign BS degree) and the like. As of now, I'm currently in a masters program. I know how masters program aren't exactly looked at during the AMCAS/AAMCOMAS, but I want to show an upward trend. So my question is, how crucial/necessary would it be for me to get a 4.0 in this...
