    Every now and then I get emails regarding research opportunities. I'll be attending PCOM this fall...

    I kind of wish I had did some kind of research in undergrad, unfortunately I passed that up for some reason.

    I was wondering from everyone when would be the best year to get involved with something like this if I can find the opportunity in grad school.

    Would it be easier in OMS1?, 2?, 3?, 4?

    I'm just curious.

    a lot of people do research between first and second year since that is our only true summer break.

    I did research the summer before medical school and I'm currently doing summer research b/w year 1 and 2.

    Best time = summer before med school or during end of 3rd year esp during an easy rotation. The most recent research will be often scrutinized and also gives you more leverage to discuss your work. The only summer you have after 1st year of med school is def a time for research but also your only time to really enjoy your time without thinking about medicine. Ideally if you got over step 1 and know where you stand in terms of your score you can plan out your research work during 3rd year. You know if your score is really on the bad might want to publish something before you interview.
