I was hoping for some advice regarding future research pursuits and how they may impact (or not impact) my future postdoc, board certification, and career goals. Some background: * currently in the internship application/interview/ranking process right now (applied solely to adult-neuro tracks) * want to do 2-year postdoc following internship so that I can become board certified in clinical neuro * want to do adult neuro assessment in outpatient settings for my career, with a long-term goal of obtaining an administrative/leadership position in a hospital setting (VA or otherwise) * have one first-author publication + five posters I have already successfully defended my dissertation, through which I collected original data, and could potentially write other publications (or at the very least make some posters) from this data. The problem is that (1) I don't particularly enjoy doing research, and (2) I very much do not like my dissertation topic (I was essentially roped into doing an extension of my advisor's prior research pursuits of which I have no personal interest). I am wondering to what extent does research production impact competitiveness for clinically-focused neuro post-docs? Furthermore, should I just bite the bullet and complete a few more research projects because I have the time and access to data? Or is that going to be unnecessary torture since I am seeking a predominantly clinical career and it won't impact my future pursuits? Any insight/advice/opinions would be greatly appreciated.
