Do med schools want volunteer work on resume/anatomy classes taken?

I haven’t taken human anatomy classes or microbiology, just calc, physics, bio and chem. My GPA is 3.45. Do I need volunteer work at hospitals? What do med schools want to see for acceptance??

    As far as I’ve ever heard they are primarily focused on high GPAs and outstanding MCAT scores. Volunteer work never hurts to have on a resume – be it for school or work. Med schools might actually require a certain amount of volunteer work at a hospital, doing the crummy stuff no one else wants to. You should double check that with a counselor. It would probably be a good idea to take an anatomy class anyways.

  • Well you should probably take anatomy and micro and then either try to get volunteer work or an internship. It always looks good to have some field work.

  • Most medical schools are competitive. So, it’s always a good idea to have a lot of volunteer hours in medical related activities. I don’t think it matters what kind of classes you took during undergrad, as long as you have taken the prerequisites to enter into medical school.
