hey guys..
i was wondering if anyone could throw their opinion my way..if you guys had to choose..which do you think program directors of pathology would look higher upon for an FMG when it comes time for residency..a dermatopath externship at smaller hospital, research experience with no publications, or hematopath observership at a very big university hospital..im torn between all these options available to me..was wondering if one of you could throw your opinion my way..thanks a lot..

pick the larger university hospital, and get a good letter from them. you'll be surprised at just HOW valuable a strong LOR can be to differentiate you from other IMGs.

cheers
