I was just wondering how essential it is to have research experience in order to obtain a heme/onc fellowship. I did a summer project in Immunology after undergrad. I did not get a publication, only a poster presentation. I am just trying to decide if I should do more research this summer between M1/M2, or if I could just take some time off.

What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance

Definitely do research. The more publications you have, the better in terms of not only landing a Hem/Onc fellowship at a renowned program, it also strenghtens your residency application considerably. Good Luck! :)
