Question Volunteering at free clinic

I had been working in UNIVERSITY associated free clinic for a year now. It is also platform for US medical students esp 1st and 2nd year to have hands on experience. I AM ALSO DOING SAME TAKING PATIENTS HISTORY AND EXAM and then present it to attendings. so is it still considered as volunteering or clinical experience.
How should i present it in my ERAS

You can post it in both work experience and volunteer experience.

Hello annashah

That sounds like great USCE! How can one volunteer in these free clinics? What are their requirements? I am a FMG from the caribbean and already taken step1 and step2 cs. I am looking for experience in the US.

Hi,
That's a good way to have experience, how did you get to that opportunity? If not too much to ask, in what hospital do you work?
