    Hello guys,

    I thought I would post this here first since I assume the people that
    browse here are radiologists and have been through the residency
    selection process.

    I am just graduating college and am trying to make a decision. Should
    I take a year off (or 2) before medical school to pursue imaging research for
    a world class institution and instructor, or can I bank an having above
    average grades in medical school?

    The reason I ask this is because I have great interest in the field (as
    well as the research associated with it) and it may be unlikely I will
    decide on another specialty during MS-4 (but anything's possible).

    No one can really predict how well they will do in med school, but to
    do specialized research with impressive publications that will be set in
    stone especially if your enjoying it.
    Is there a good amount of pressure on research in the residency selection
    process?

    I am considering radiology in the military because from what I gather it
    is slightly less competitive but the training is there.

    Feel free to PM me for specifics about this research. Thanks for
    reading guys.
