I'm a 3rd year who has recently decided to go into ophthalmology. I'm trying to set up a research project and I have 2 options...one in epidemiology which has a high likelihood of publication and another in a basic science lab with a very low likelihood of publication. Both projects are with well-respected professors. Also, irrespective of potential for future publication, I like each project equally. Does anyone have any advice for me? Is epidemiology research less respected when applying for residency? Thanks!
