    Good question, here's another one. I wrote a case report at Mt. Sinai after my freshman year of college (summertime). It was supposed to be published, but wasn't. Let's say I submit it now and it does get published, can I use that to my advantage to get a good residency? The case was in dermatology, and I know to get into that field you have to do research in it.

    The application for residency includes space for ANY reasearch you have done, including during undergrad and time off from school. It is better if it's published, but will still look good even if it's. If you presented the research at a poster presentation or submitted an abstract, you can include this information as well.
