    Is your work experience just shadowing? Get some long-term, hands-on experience - volunteering is great for that. Like the person said above, look into volunteering for a care home or hospice, because you develop loads of skills that are relevant to medicine, you get experience in a caring role, insight into the challenges in healthcare and it also demonstrates commitment.

    It's shadowing. Ok I'll try that.
