    Tbh most medical schools appreciate long term experience. So even a few hours a week or a month over a long period of time is fine.

    It's mainly what you learn from each work experience (kinda like quality over quantity).
    Try to have at least one long term work experience. For me, I've volunteered two hours a month for four years, and also 2-4 hours a week for five months.
