    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if you could tell me what do you guys think is good amount of total hours that one should complete in the following areas:

    Hospital Volunteering:
    Other Volunteering (if even necessary):
    Doctor Shadowing:

    Thanks!

    I would recommend quality over quantity. I really don't see the value in counting hours of activities as long as you show commitment to them. I'm willing to bet that admission officers don't count hours either and rather look for what you gained from your experiences and/or why you did them.

    You don't have to do all of them. If you can find a good hospital gig for 6 months it's good enough to show them you have that experience.

    consistency is important =) you need to show that you have dedicated your time and effort rather than doing multiple extracurriculars in a short amount of time. also make sure that you get involved in ECs that benefit/satisfy you. this is a great opportunity for you to really see if you enjoy working in a healthcare related environment.
