You're in medical school...you will have no problems getting in a lab.My MD school does have significant research funding. However, I have literally zero experience and I'm wondering how unattractive this will make me to researching professors when I look for a position in their lab. I have read scientific papers, and made efforts to understand them in undergrad as part of my major. Overall I am not confident in my understanding of how research is conducted, and how papers are written and edited (and least in the sense of jumping into a research lab at a medical school).
Is there anything I can do to improve myself? I feel like this is a catch-22 scenario where you need research experience in order to be qualified to get research experience.
If it matters: currently not interested in any ultra competitive specialty like derm/ortho/plastics/etc, but am interested in what I believe are mid-competitive specialties like DR/EM.
