Research Experience

Research experience, while not necessarily a requirement, is a common experience among Berkeley pre-meds. Some medical schools look closely for students with significant research experience. Being at Berkeley and in the SF Bay Area, there are many opportunities to get involved! Make sure to check in with your academic department to get more info on how to get involved with research.
