I'm an MSI and have started to think about what I will do this summer. I am interested in going on an internation service trip and opportunities are available for this. However, in talking with other upperclassmen who are also interested in surgery, many took the time to do research. I was wanting to get your opinion as to how valuable research would be for me and as to how necessary it is for (let's say general surgery) applications. I do not have any research experience so far and don't know if this will end up being a disadvantage. Thanks.
