MA: volunteer at hospice or hospital?

  1. Hi. I am going to start an accelerated medical assistant program this October. I was wondering; I want to volunteer in a healthcare setting in order to strengthen my resume once I am done with the MA program and looking for jobs. In addition to this benefit, I also want to commit my time to helping others in a healthcare environment. What are your opinions about volunteering in a senior hospice care setting vs. volunteering in a regular hospital. Is one better than the other in terms of strengthening my resume? What are you opinions? Thanks.

    You can use that, because not only will you gain experience seeing so much, it will benefit you a lot on your resume.
