Community/Volunteer Experience

M.D. Admissions

As our mission is to serve our community, it is important that our applicants demonstrate a commitment to their community as well.


  1. Start by basing community service and volunteering around what you are interested in and/or passionate about. Find opportunities.
  2. Utilize different student organizations at your undergraduate institutions to take part in community service and volunteer opportunities.
  3. There isn't a "magic" number of how many opportunities applicants should have. Like clinical experiences, showing a commitment to organizations over time is always favorable.
  4. Make sure you write down descriptions of what you did, dates and contact information so it is easily accessible for your AMCAS application.
