Hello SDN, hoping you can offer some advice here. I'm a rising senior going to take a gap year and have zero research experience. I have strong EC's otherwise but I'm afraid my lack of research may hurt down the road. I graduate this spring, so I feel like I missed out on campus research, and don't know where else to look for opportunities. I don't plan to have research as a strong point in my app, nor do I intend to apply to research heavy schools. I'm actually mainly interested in practicing rural medicine, and have a strong desire to go in to primary care if that makes any difference. Basically I'm wondering if it makes sense for me to look for research opportunities at this point, and if so, where should I look? If I did find something I'd probably have half a year of experience when I apply, and would most likely continue through my gap year. Thanks for reading!
