I absolutely echo the above two commenters. I didn't have a lot of healthcare-related volunteer experience, but my volunteer experience largely had to do with helping and impacting my local community. I also did an internship last summer (also not healthcare-related) that allowed me to develop and showcase leadership and organizational skills. In my case the big project was starting a summer tutoring opportunity for foster kids struggling in math and science and headed into middle or high school. I think it's all about displaying well-developed critical thinking skills and the ability to liaison and work hard for the betterment of the community. Find those opportunities. Volunteer with your local farmers' market (I did!), find a great internship, implement community initiatives at your own workplace, or even sit down with some healthcare professionals to learn about their careers. It's all helpful. Keep at it, you've got this!!
