Hey guys,
i'm a first year med student and i'm wondering how important it is to do research to get into a radiology residency
And how important it is to get the research published and what type of research they are looking for.
Thanks for your help guys !

Research is not required to get into a rads residency, but it one of the factors that contributes to the overall picture. It is especially benefiical if you are aiming for high powered university programs. Although published research is obviously the best, even non published research will help you stand out from those who do not have any. I did some non-published MRI research and I think it got me to the program I am in today. But 3 of the 6 residents in my class have no research at all. Good luck.
