I am currently looking to see if veterinary assistant experience should count as clinical experience for medical school. I have worked at my dads veterinary clinic for the past 6 years and have done everything from running chemistry panels to manually breathing oxygen during a coding surgery patient to administering medication to hospitalized patients. I have shadowed a physician a couple of times and have noticed a lot of overlap between the professions. However, a professor at the medical school that is my first choice said that this would not count and I should not list it as clinical experience. I understand that these are not humans, but the concepts of the care are largely the same.
