    This is just my perspective. I do not work in HR, but I received positive feedback on my newbie resume on a few occasions upon graduation. Also, I had a job offer soon after I graduated. List items in order of importance. The most important item on an entry-level resume is your education, which should go just below the objective. Your clinical rotations & practicum could follow (with the dates included) in a separately labeled section (e.g., "Clinical Rotations") for clarity. Licensure/Certifications seems like the next logical thing to list. Finally, you can have a section labeled "Volunteer Experience". Your cover letter can cover the breadth & depth of your volunteer experience. You may want to be more specific with your objective, & tailor it to the job for which you are applying. Good luck to you! What an awesome experience Haiti must be!
