I am just curious as to what you would do if given the choice. I have the opportunity to work on a clinical research project where the opportunity for publication is high at a top 5 institution. I am also scheduled to start volunteering at a children's hospital with lots of patient contact. I only have time to do one. As it stands now, I have plenty of basic science research experience, but little-to-no volunteer experience. Would you do the clinical research or pure volunteering? I am just summoning opinions.
