I currently am working as a medical assistant/scribe for a local podiatrist. I have lots of good experiences I don’t think I would get a lot of other places especially because I don’t have any special licensure (EMT, MA, CNA etc.) I was recently in a discussion with my premed advisor who suggested to me that this experience might not be viewed as actual clinical experience by MD and DO admissions offices. I was surprised by this due to the scope of my experiences. Is this true? Should I try finding a different opportunity to replace this one or will this be able to compare with other experiences in “actual” clinical settings?
Thanks for the insight.
