Any experience which allows you to develop key skills relevant to life as a medical student and doctor can be used. Ideally, you should have healthcare related work experience, such as time in a hospital ward, a GP, pharmacy, care home etc. You need to show variety and depth of reflective learning, such as observing important qualities doctors have and how you developed them whilst on placement. Of course, the more work experience you have can provide you with more important reflections, but you can still use little work experience to show deeper understanding, even if you work part time in retail. Another important thing to consider is variety of experience ( different healthcare settings) and length of experience. For example, volunteering for 6 months at a care home (even if once a week) is better than doing a full week. Showing commitment and consistency is so important. Finally, the key thing is to demonstrate key skills or qualities you've observed and developed during your work experience and link them to why they're useful as a medical student or doctor.
